Ka‘ūpūlehu Cultural Center
This special place called Ka‘ūpūlehu, once believed to be named Ka`ulupulehu, roasted breadfruit, is
based on a legend of two sisters, Kolomu'o and Pahinahina,
who was visited by Pele while roasting their breadfruit. Stories such as these help define the history of these lands.
At the Ka‘ūpūlehu Cultural Center, located below The Hualālai Grille, the legacy of this place and the culture of Hawai‘i is celebrated with programs designed to educate families:
- Lei making
- Traditional hula
- Hawaiian language
- Hawaiian arts and crafts
- Culture and natural history
- Native flora and fauna
- Hawaiian music
The Ka‘ūpūlehu Cultural Center programs are designed to be interactive, fun, and educational for the entire family. Please join our mea ho‘okipa (host) as they share the Hawaiian culture and teach you to make crafts that you will be able to take home and share. Talk story with Uncle Earl and our kupuna (elders). Make this your first stop during your Voyage here at Hualālai.
