The History of Maui

Maui information

holagirlIn Hawaiian mythology, Maui is a cultural hero and ancient chief. The Island of Maui is named for him.

Maui is said to have created the Hawaiian Islands by tricking his brothers. He convinces them to take him out fishing, but catches his hook upon the ocean floor. He tells his brothers that he has caught a big fish, and tells them to paddle as hard as they can. His brothers paddle with all their might, and being intent with their effort, did not notice the island rising behind them. Maui repeats this trick several times, creating the Hawaiian Islands.

Maui’s next feat is to stop the sun from moving so fast. His mother Hina complains that her kapa (bark cloth) is unable to dry because the days are so short. Maui climbs the mountain Haleakala ("House of the Sun") and lassos the sun’s rays as the sun comes up, using a rope made from his sister's hair. The sun pleads for life and agrees that the days shall be long in summer and short in winter.

Today Maui is a rich vacation destination, from its gorgeous miles of pristine beaches to its rainforest to the summit in Haleakala National Park. A Maui vacation can be as active or relaxed as you wish it. There is a whole suite of ocean related activities from snorkeling and surfing to whale watching and sailing. On the land side, there are zip lines, horseback rides, hiking, biking and touring in your car. Maui has world class resorts, golf courses and restaurants.
