The 2019 Maui Makahiki will be held on Saturday, November 30.
Maui Makahiki is a culturally progressive one-day event devoted to sustainable regenerative agricultural initiatives that utilize traditional practices.
Previous Maui Makahiki events were attended by more than 2,000 people and featured local artisans, craft booths, a farmers market, and food vendors.
In tribute to Hawaiian tradition, there were lawn games for Makua (parents) and Opio (children) including Ulu Maika (bowling), Hakaka Moa (hand wrestling), Hukihuki (tug-of-war), Kūkini (running), and ʻōʻō ihe (spear throwing). And, of course, there was also a lei making demonstration, a true expression of the never-ending circle of aloha with friends and ʻohana alike.
In preparation for this year's event, more than 25 volunteers have attended our initial planning meetings.
We welcome and appreciate the opportunity to honor your partnership and expand our community reach to promote positive social impact on a grass roots level and to increase awareness of environmental, cultural, and agricultural practices of our Hawaiian host culture here on Maui.
It is our kuleana (responsibility) to produce an event that is accessible to the community at large and which, in addition to being experientially stimulating, is also environmentally supportive and culturally respectful and progressive.
We invite you to send us an e-mail message at the address below.
