ALOHA from O'ahu
---Like Go Lu'au---

Like Go Lu'au

The feast and festivities of the lu'au are the traditional ways that the people of Hawai'i have celebrated special occasions. The birth of a child, a victorious battle and a successful harvest are all events that called for the honoring of the gods and the sharing of bounty with friends and family.

Called 'aha 'aina (gathering for a meal) in ancient times, the term lu'au came into favor much later in Hawaiian history and refers to the young edible taro leaves that are traditionally used to wrap the food prior to being placed in the imu (underground oven).

Lu'au Spread

With the abolishment of the ancient Hawaiian kapu (taboo) system in 1819 by King Kamehameha II, women and men were able to eat together and to share the same food. Prior to that time, women and men dined apart and women were forbidden to partake of several foods including pork, bananas and several species of fish. Since 1819, the ancient feast of 'aha 'aina, or the lu'au, that was such an important part of the Hawaiian culture, has become a treasured family custom and continues to play a significant part in family life.

Today, the lu'au is often used by family and friends to celebrate special occasions such as a baby's first birthday, a wedding, a graduation, or as an important way to raise funds by churches and social groups.
