1355 West 3100 South, West Valley City, Utah 84119Everyone is invited to see the Polynesian Cultural Center's Ha: Breath of Life FREE of charge. Come Join the Celebration!This is every man's story, told through the life of a Polynesian man named Mana. Journey along with young Mana as he is born out of the turmoil of a capsized canoe, washed upon the shores of life to find his way. He and his parents find refuge in Tonga and learn the importance of community. Little Mana celebrates his early years of life in Hawai‘i with the customary birthday l?‘au marking his survival in the world. We next see Mana as a young boy in Aotearoa, or New Zealand, where he is growing and becoming a young man. As he comes upon a beautiful maiden named Lani in Samoa, he learns about falling in love and earning the acceptance of her family. With love comes marriage and soon Mana and Lani are taking their vows in the romantic setting of Tahiti. War touches their lives in Fiji and Mana is saddened by the death of his father. The story begins again with the celebration of life as Mana and Lani welcome their new baby into the world. PCC FACTS:
