Te Au Moana Luau


A constant among the vast generations of Hawaiians and Polynesians is the ocean tide. The tide linking all of Oceania, Te Au Moana, shares the ancestral storytelling of the people of Maui and the Pacific through lavish songs and dances.

Te Au Moanatranslated as “the ocean tide,” has always been a constant throughout Oceania, connecting our islands, peoples, and generations. Our Polynesian ancestors traversed these ocean tides for ages and revered them for their life-sustaining properties. Their stories, which spoke of their expert skills in fishing, gathering, and voyaging, demonstrated the tremendous depths of knowledge and respect they had to the Earth and its elements. As Hawaii’s premier entertainment company, Tihati Productions endeavors to bring these stories to life at Te Au Moana: The Ocean Tide. We invite you to dine as the ocean sits peacefully before you, as it has for thousands of years. We ask you to dance under the Maui skies; the moon and stars await you, and we hope that you discover all the fascinating stories at Te Au Moana: The Ocean Tide, a spectacular l??au experience like no other!
