Hawaiian Culture for Sale

Maui generally offers a rather sterile middle-America tourism experience: mega resorts, clean sandy beaches, national park, and a couple of road trips. I appreciate the few cultural activities which are slowing arising, such as outrigger canoing from the Fairmont Kea Lani. Visitors get a little exercise, some history, legends, chanting and conch shell blowing. Not to mention a video record of the experience. What could be more Hawaiian?


  1. If you'd asked, you would have learned it is a documentary crew filming a paddler.

  2. Thanks for the heads-up. Tell us more, we want to know.
