The evening’s host will share the story of ‘Oahi, the ancient ;re
throwing ceremony of Makana, the northwestern mountain
peak that can be viewed from the resort and depicted in the
St. Regis Bar mural. The ‘Oahi was performed for the most
esteemed celebrations. On the day of the ceremony skilled ;re
throwers climbed the steep cliffs to the top of Makana with dry
logs of papala or hau. The logs were lit and hurled out over
the ocean. The updrafts created by the trade winds kept the
;rebrands aloft, soaring as far as a mile out to sea.
This Friday evening ritual concludes with a dramatic Champagne
sabering. Enjoy live Hawaiian entertainment with Maluhia
from 6: 30 pm - 9: 30 pm.
