Huki “to pull a rope; to support…”

July 2, 2013



People join together for hukilau at Puuhonua o Honaunau NHP cultural festival

The land and the ocean sustain the people. What occurs in either environment affects the other. In essence, we can “huki” – pull together and support.

The annual hukilau at Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park’s cultural festival demonstrates one of the many ways that Hawaiians sustained themselves with the bounty of the sea. Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail is a network of ancient and historic land and ocean trails.
