luau...a Hawaiian tradition
In ancient Hawai'i, men and woman ate their meals apart. Commoners and women of all ranks were also forbidden by the ancient Hawaiian religion to eat certain delicacies. This all changed in 1819, when King Kamehameha II abolished the traditional religious practices. A feast where the king ate with women was the symbolic act which ended the Hawaiian religious taboos, and the luau was born.
"Tables were draped with white, but the entire tops were covered with ferns and leaves massed together so as almost to form a tablecloth of themselves; quantities of flowers were placed about mingling with the ferns... The natives had turned out in great numbers, and the scent of their leis of flowers and maile leaves was almost overpowering."
