Why: Ka Moku O Manokalanipō Pāʻani Makahiki honors the traditional time of year from November through February when Lono ruled the land. One of the ways that Lono was honored was through friendly competition. We’re featuring 10 games – Haka Moa, ʻUlu Maika, ʻŌʻō Ihe, Moa Pāheʻe, Pā Uma, Uma, Kūkini, Pōhaku Hoʻoikaika, and Hukihuki, plus a Kōnane tournament. Awards will be given for 1 st – 3 rd in each event and division, and overall for 1 st – 3 rd. This is not a fundraiser. All funds donated and raised that day are used to perpetuate this great community event.

This is an alcohol/drug-free event sponsored by Hawaiʻi Tourism, County of Kauaʻi, hawaiiancheckers.com, and The Garden Island Newspaper.
