INTERACTIVE PRE-SHOW ACTIVITIES
It is common throughout Polynesia to find great gatherings of people weaving indigenous foliage and flowers into elaborate arrangements. Guests will share in this pastime by creating their own floral hair piece or wristlet; and learn of the significance of the lei and experience its timeless appeal.
Otherwise tapa or bark cloth can be found throughout all of Polynesia. To Hawaiians it is a hana no'eau or skilled art that survived extinction and is being constantly revived. The Hawaiian art of stamping or 'ohe ka pala can be experienced through making your own bookmark.
Tatau Pasefika (Polynesian Tatoos):
Te Moana Nui (the vast ocean) does not divide, but rather connects the people of Polynesia. One of the many evidences of this can be found in the Polynesian tattoo. Used as a rite of passage to show bravery and maturity, tattoos can be found all throughout the South pacific. Our Polynesian artisan will draw simple temporary Polynesian designs on willing guests.
The Hawaiians and Polynesians alike had no written form of communication. Their entire history, culture and language were passed on by memory through songs, dances and chants. They had extremely exceptional skills of observation, memory and recitation. We retell some of these stories through casual storytelling and hula.
