how it began On the quiet morning of December 7, 1941, 130 vessels of the U.S. Pacific Fleet sat in the calm waters of Pearl Harbor. Seven of nine battleships were tied up along Battleship Row and naval aircraft were lined up at various air stations. At 7:55 a.m. the first wave of Japanese aircraft arrived, and at approximately 8:10 a.m., the USS Arizona exploded. It would be the first of many explosions around the island that morning. The USS Arizona Memorial is one of four sites, collectively known as the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites, and each has its own story to tell. They include the USS Bowfin Submarine Museum, Battleship Missouri and Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor.

‘free pass’ days In tribute to the service and sacrifice made by America’s Armed Forces, the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites offers active-duty service members, retirees and dependents ‘‘Free Pass’’ days to celebrate the birthdays of each respective U.S. military branch. Paid admission will be waived for tours of the Battleship Missouri Memorial, Pacific Aviation Museum Pearl Harbor and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum on Aug. 3-4 and Sept. 21-22. A valid military I.D. is required. Additional info is on page 120. THIS WEEK OAHU


Blue Hawaiian Helicopters

Experience Oahu’s most thrilling sights on one incredible tour! From the Aloha Tower to Diamond Head, from glittering Hanauma Bay to the pristine Koolau Mountains, from Sacred Falls and the breathtaking North Shore to the emotional power of Pearl Harbor, nobody shows you all of Oahu’s iconic sights like Blue Hawaiian—the only helicopter tour company serving all of Hawaii. Plus, on Oahu, only Blue Hawaiian flies the 21stcentury, quiet-technology Eco-Star, the world’s most advanced touring helicopter. So forget about sitting in a tour bus or rental car and fighting traffic for hours. Give Blue Hawaiian just 50 blissful minutes of your time, and you’ll see all of Oahu—the way it should be seen.

Get in on the Fun Stuff!

see What’s As you know, there’s a lot to see and do around the island. Check out the island’s attractions, historic locales, museums, botanical gardens, hiking trails, beaches and be sure to mingle with locals at community events. Summer’s here, so take advantage of our cooling tradewinds and blue sky days to get out and about!

check out an isle event No matter where you go or who you meet, you may notice the extra special friendliness of Hawai‘i’s people—that’s the aloha spirit. It’s the same spirit that permeates all our local events. An arts and crafts fair, hula performance, carnival, theatrical show, sports event, rodeo, cultural festival, food and wine event, live concert, surf contest—no matter what the event is, you’ll find it done local style—all with the warmth of the islands. Join the fun and take the spirit of aloha with you wherever you go.

more than just shopping Many of Hawai‘i’s shopping centers offer weekly cultural performances and fun activities. Enjoy keiki hula halau (children’s hula group); cultural demos such as lei making, or learning to play the ‘ukulele; musical performances of all kinds; and even farmers markets that sell locally grown products and handmade gifts.

O‘ahu’s large family attractions take learning out of the classroom and into real life. At the Polynesian Cultural Center, visit seven different villages and get to know a bit about each Polynesian culture while participating in hands-on activities. Visit Pearl Harbor Historic Sites for an in-depth experience of December 7, 1941, and learn how the U.S. responded to this tragedy. Kualoa gets you out onto the saddle, ATV or bus to explore an area that ancient Hawaiians considered a sacred place. As for Wet’n’Wild Hawaii, well, it’s just plain fun!

enjoy the sunny outdoors Hawai‘i’s nearly perfect, year-round weather makes it possible for all visitors to enjoy outdoor activities. Go hiking in the morning and hit the beach in the afternoon. We love our tradewinds that keep the vog or volcanic haze—courtesy of Kilauea on the Big Island—at bay. However, when winds blow in from the south, there is an upside to the added humidity—gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. On those days, just sit back on the beach and drink it all in. Bring the camera too!

Set amidst the lush landscaping and tiare flowers of Tahiti Village, the weekend kicks off Friday at 7 p.m. with the invitational division, featuring some of the world’s most skilled and celebrated dancers. Poised with incredible grace, many of them have won titles in major heiva (traditional Tahitian festivals). The competition heats up Saturday at 9:30 a.m. in the Pacific Theatre with the solo and group competitions. This portion of the competition is focused exclusively on the otea, the most widely known style of Tahitian dance. Marked by fierce and rhythmic movements, tane (men) are judged by their masculine style, while vahine (women) for their faarapu, or hip movements. Speed, grace, coordination with drumming, costumes, and overall presentation also play a role in who will be named the best in their division. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for keiki ages 5-11.

Hula

Whenever most people see smiling hula girls with their flowing hand movements, fluttering grass skirts and flower garlands (lei), they quickly associate them with Hawai‘i. While the advertising images are beautiful, the deeper meaning of this Hawaiian cultural tradition can easily be overlooked. Historians generally believe that the hula originated centuries ago with the arrival of ancient Polynesians to Hawai‘i. Hula, performed only by males, described historical events and myths. It was also performed at religious ceremonies to honor Hawaiian ancestral gods and ali‘i (royalty). After Western and European contact in the late 1700s, some aspects of hula began to change as a result of the foreign influences. Today, there are two styles of hula performed: ‘auana (modern) and kahiko (ancient). For visitors who want to learn hula, many hotels offer instruction in the basic hand and foot movements. Whether you’re new to hula or have been to classes, the most satisfying way to experience this Hawaiian cultural tradition is to sway your body to its warm and embracing spirit.

A Hawai‘i vacation just isn’t complete without experiencing a lu‘au. Whether you’re a “novice” or returning guest, you’ll never tire of the aloha shared by all, the spirited performances and tables laden with delicious Hawaiian fare. Step off the bus and you’re transported into the Hawai‘i of yesteryear. The rush of Waikiki is beyond sight and sound, and all you hear are warm greetings of “Aloha!” set against the backdrop of a setting sun. Even if you’ve come solo or as a couple, you’re all now part of an extended family that includes fellow guests. The various elements that make up a lu‘au are basically the same—the uncovering of the kalua pig from the ‘imu (underground oven), perhaps some cultural demonstrations, a bounty of food and Polynesian entertainment that includes a fireknife dancer. However, each lu‘au has its own unique flair that sets it apart from the rest. You’ll have to experience them all to know which is your favorite—that’s all part of the fun! Just remember that casual attire is adequate, alohawear is the dress of choice, and elastic waistbands are recommended! •Ali‘i Luau at the Polynesian Cultural Center— Located away Polynesian Cultural Center from the bustle of Waikiki, the Polynesian Cultural Center is a gem on O‘ahu’s northeastern shore. It’s well worth the drive as you take in the chiseled Ko‘olau mountain range, white sand beaches and neighborhoods along the way. The Ali‘i Luau affords visitors the opportunity to tour the seven villages, then with the sound Polynesian Cultural Center of the conch shell, it’s time to party at the lu‘au! See the royal court, enjoy traditional Hawaiian performances and an all-you-can-eat buffet.

The calm waters surrounding the village at Paradise Cove Luau give no indication of the fun and hilarity that ensues each night at this secluded “village.” Visitors are greeted by friendly escorts, musicians and frothy sweet mai tais. After sipping the delicious beverage, pose for pictures with a beautiful wahine (woman) or handsome kane (man) dressed in pareo (a sarong-style wrap). Meander through the Paradise Cove village and learn Hawaiian games such as ‘ulumaika and moa pa‘akea. You can also try your hand at Hawaiian crafts such as making a lei, and even get a temporary tattoo styled after traditional polynesian designs. Before the lu‘au itself begins, several group activities are available for participation. Learn how to wear a pareo—there really is an art to creating different looks. Did you know that men can wear them as swim trunks? Another highlight is the hukilau, which is a demonstration of how the villagers pull the day’s bounty from the sea. Right before

Even if you’re not a bred-to-shop kind of person, your family and friends would surely appreciate a nice gift from your vacation. This is the Japanese tradition of gift giving called ‘‘omiyage.’’ It shows your thoughts are with loved ones even while you’re away having a blast in paradise!

take hawai‘i home Alohawear, t-shirts, swimwear, rashguards, brightly colored pareo, beach totes, luggage, accessories and more are available in designs that say ‘‘Hawai‘i.’’ Anything and everything inspired by the Aloha State are available at local chain stores, unique isle shops and open-air swap meets at every price range. And don’t think aloha shirts or dresses can only be worn in the isles. In some states, aloha shirts are accepted business attire that easily go from work to after-hour play. So forego that starchy white!

edible treats Wasabi or garlic flavored mac nuts; soft caramel and a Kona coffee blend covered in chocolate; handdipped clusters of toffee, mac nuts, crisp rice and chocolate; guava mac nut cookies; li hing mui, cherry and plum seeds of all varieties; macadamia nut oil infused with chilis or herbs; chili pepper, guava or mango jams...all make great (and tasty) gifts.

the scent of aloha Take home the fragrances of pikake, puakenikeni and tuberose in the form of all-natural bath and body products such as handmade soaps and lotions; candles; shampoos and conditioners; and more. All-natural kukui oil benefits the skin with its ability to relieve painful sunburned skin, as well as issues such as eczema and psoriasis. It’s a great natural remedy. THIS WEEK OAHU

Polynesian Cultural Center

An experience at the Polynesian Cultural Center (PCC) in La‘ie is an immersion into the exotic cultures of Polynesia. It’s the one location in the state that closely depicts the traditions of Aotearoa (New Zealand), Fiji, Hawai‘i, Samoa, Tahiti and Tonga. - breath of life” “ha: Everyday, thousands of visitors learn what lies at the heart of these cultures through demonstrations, exhibits and hands-on activities at each respective village. This year, PCC celebrates 50 years of preserving and perpetuating these cultures. Visitors can anticipate either an annual cultural festival or special event each month leading up to a week of festivities, September 1-8. The actual 50th canoe tour anniversary date is October 12. Join the celebration and look for special events in the coming months. PCC’s roots began in 1948 when members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS) started a hukilau as a fundraising event. Students aotearoa from Brigham Young University-Hawai‘i, then known as the Church College of Hawai‘i, learned Polynesian dances from the community, who pitched in to teach the students each culture’s distinctive dance moves. “Polynesian Panorama,” samoa tahiti a production of authentic South Pacific island songs and dances, was born. In 1962, more than 100 labor building missionaries volunteered to build PCC’s original 39 structures on a 16-acre site. Skilled artisans and materials from the hawai‘i South Pacific were brought in to ensure authenticity. On October 12, 1963, PCC opened to the public. Admission was just $1.50 for adults, children were 75 cents. See the renovated Hukilau Theater offering a high caliber, interactive theater experience. tonga An onscreen film will immerse audiences on a journey unlike any other. The Polynesian Cultural Center continues to evolve. More importantly, the light of aloha whether from a cultural or spiritual source, continues to burn within every individual. Combined with the spirit of collaboration and unity, all merge to create a consummate experience for every guest. ali‘i lu‘au

North Shore

The pace on this side of the island is slow and relaxed during the long days of summer. Big waves aren’t the norm unless there’s a strong storm brewing across the Pacific, so you’ll likely find conditions more suitable for snorkelers, scuba divers and swimmers. However, always check with lifeguards on ocean currents and heed signs. Looking for a bite to eat or some shops to browse? Leisurely explore Hale‘iwa with its cool surf shops and clothing boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, eateries and popular sweet shops. Check out Hale‘iwa Art Walk, 5-9 p.m. every last Saturday of the month. Meet the folks behind local shops, galleries, eateries and restaurants, plus enjoy entertainment, artists and sidewalk sales. North Shore Chamber of Commerce, 808-637-4558, GoNorthShore.org.
