KIHEI HISTORY NIGHT: THE LAND OF PALAUEA- THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF WAILEâ€˜A
Tuesday, July 1, 6:00 p.m.
Kihei Public Library
This 90-minute program will include a historical slide show and community talk story focusing on the history of what is now one of South Mauiâ€™s most famous â€œdestination resortsâ€ the planned community of â€œWaileâ€™a.â€ Â The presentation will cover many centuries, from Mauiâ€™s pre-contact days to the birth of Â â€œWailea: City of Flowersâ€ described in 1970â€™s real estate brochures. The ancient ahupuaâ€™a of Palauea begins at the northern edge of Maui Meadows and ends just before the Kea Lani resort. Palauea is the solemn resting place of hundreds of traditional Hawaiian burials dating all the way back to the 14th century. There is a long, deep and fascinating story to be told about this land of twisting blue rock gulches leading to white sand beach coves full of fish and sea life.
Enjoy an illustrated slide show of the historical and cultural sites that still remain to tell the story of this world renown area of Maui. The slide show will be facilitated by local historical researchers, Lucienne de Naie and Daniel Kanahele. Kamaâ€™aina of the area are also been invited to share their family stories and remembrances of the region.
Program is suitable for ages 12 and older. Â For more information, call 875-6833.
