 The marcher’s have undertaken a 193-mile torch-lit journey that started and will end at Moku’ula (Malu-ulu-o-Lele Park in Lahaina), the ancient Capital of the Kingdom of Hawai’i. This is part of their journey was on the east side of Maui in the Kipahulu and Kaupo Moku.


Turtle and the Shark-Animated Short from Hawai’i with local Hana ties!

The Turtle and the Shark is one of the most popular Samoan legends. It tells the story of a man and a woman who are deeply in love. Unfortunately, the man is chosen to be the next meal to the cannibal King Malietofaiga. To avoid this horrible fate, they flee to another island. However, fearing their act of disobedience would bring dishonor on their families, they willingly gave up their lives at the cliffs of Vaitogi. The gods had mercy on them and transformed them into a turtle and a shark to live together, forever.
