    About The Te Au Moana Luau

    A constant among the vast generations of Hawaiians and Polynesians is the ocean tide. The tide linking all of Oceania, Te Au Moana, shares the ancestral telling's of the people of Maui and the Pacific through lavish songs and dances; songs and dances that celebrate their intrinsic skills. Fishing, gathering, gift giving, romance, tapa making (bark cloth) were vital aspects of daily Polynesian life. Te Au Moana celebrates these natural relationships among the Polynesians, and invites you to enjoy an extraordinary Luau experience like no other.

    Running Order for the Te Au Moana (The Ocean Tide) Show

    Following our Kupuna's (ancestors) method of storytelling, Te Au Moana comes to life as it tells a story:

    Act I: Retelling of the legendary episodes of Maui as he lifted the heavens from the earth so that man could walk tall, slowing the sun so that his mother Hina could dry her kapa, retrieving ava from the gods so that man could partake, and the fishing up of the islands from the sea.

    Act II: Features dances from Tahiti, Tonga, and the Atolls of Cook Island to demonstrate the inherent relationship among all of Oceania.

    Act III: Celebrates the island of Maui with contemporary songs and hula, including ukulele players, a vibrant torch dance, and the dangerous fire knife dance of Samoa.
