a luau is for a celebration of sorts for a Rights of Passage called “Pa’a Aina or becoming Pa’a or in tune with the land in the Old days. Luau literally means and pertains to the taro leaf that’s being prepared or eaten for the Pa’a Aina . . The correct name should be Pa’a Aina or Pa’ina for short. The first Pa’a Aina or celebration occurs the night one is born. Next celebration occurs when a baby is 1 year old, now a days graduation from High School is also celebrated, then Marriage, House Or canoe warming, one’s Celebration of life or death is another occasion for a Pa’ina, then 1 year after you die. So each of these Rights of passage call for a celebration or Pa’ina or commonly called Luau today
