Makahiki season comes alive at Turtle Bay Resort

Turtle Bay Resort celebrated the Makahiki season with traditional Hawaiian sporting events and cultural performances. The celebration entitled Makahiki Kuilima was held on the lawns of Turtle Bay Resort on January 12, 2013. The event was presented by Hawaiian education program, Naepuni Aloha and Ke Kula `o S.M. Kamakau. Makahiki Kuillima is sponsored by Kanalu, Turtle Bay Resort, and many more community supporters.


Participants were able to step back into the past and watch athletes engage in ancient games such as hukihuki (tug of war), ‘ulu maika (lawn bowling), and ‘ō‘ō ihe (spear throwing). Spectators were treated to a rare demonstration of He‘e Hōlua (sled riding), which was last publicly done, prior to Makahiki Kuilima festivities, in 1822.
