Help Repair Sugar Cane Train

2691106454222415

Residents and businesses can help the Maui Sugar Cane Train be up and running again in the next year.   Fundrasing will be held to repair and refurbish some of the older train cars.  Those who take on this task have the opportunity to get their names on the new train cars.

Craig Hill is the new owner of the train and a 30 year Maui resident.  Many were disappointed when the train went out of business.  Hill is committed to seeing the landmark train return to service.  This is an opportunity for people to get involved and give back to the community.

For more information, you can read the Maui News article in its entirety here.  We hope to see the train up and running in the near future!

Makahiki Celebration

Unknown

The ancient Hawaiian New Year Festival known as Makahiki covers four consecutive lunar months. The start of the festival is usually in October or November and is decided using astronomy.  Known as a time for celebration, the Makahiki has three phrases.

The first phrase is for spiritual cleansing. Offerings were made to the gods in the form of agricultural goods. Each community had stone altars set up for their offerings.

The festival would move clockwise around the island. Each community caretaker would present the offerings to Lono, the fertility god that makes things grow.

The second phase was all about the celebration. Dancing, sporting, singing and feasting.  Any wars happening between communities was put on hold during the 4 month celebration.

The third and final phase, tax canoes were filled with gift offerings to the god Lono and set out to sea. The ending of the festivities marked the beginning of the new farming cycle for the next year.  You can learn more about the festival here.
