The women wear pahu skirts and tops or muumuus (baggy dresses)
Both men and women wear leis or flower necklaces
The men wear a malo or a lava lava which is a piece of material wrapped around their waist.
The Hukilau is a fun hula that tells the story of having a feast after the fisherman, together with their families, bring their catches in.
The fish are caught in huge nets held in shallow waters, then pulled onto shore.
Leaves were tied to rope to prevent fish from escaping
Groups of people pull ends of rope trapping the fish
and then they pull the net to shore.
All who help get a share of the fish.
