On Wednesdays, the Polynesian revue presents Hula Mana, a celebration of Hawaii's history with chants, drum beats and both ancient and contemporary hula dancing. Friday's show, entitled Savai'i, Origins of Polynesia, features a Samoan fire knife dance, Maori warrior haka and Tahitian tamure. Included in the evening are a complimentary mai tai and flower lei po'o greeting.
