Pacific University Annual Lū'au

Pacific University's annual lū‘au is a culmination of many hours of hard work and many hearts coming together to share a unique aspect of our island heritage.

Nā Haumāna O Hawai‘i presents the only completely student-run and student-directed lū‘au in the Northwest, attracting about 2,000 people every year.

Lū‘au is a time in our academic year when our 'Ohana comes together to celebrate and share our culture with the extended Pacific community.

This year's theme is "E mālama ʻia nā pono o ka ʻāina e nā ʻōpio" — "The traditions of the land are perpetuated by its youth."
