Makana is a mountain located on northern shore of the island of Kauai, where it rises above Limahuli Valley. Makana is a Hawaiian language term meaning gift or reward. It is often used as a person's name or as part of a name. Limahuli Garden and Preserve preserves the valley below. It was featured in the 1958 film adaptation of the musical South Pacific as Bali Hai, a name that is still used to this day. Makana Mountain is one of only two locations where the fire-throwing ceremony,ōahi, was performed in ancient Hawaiian times. Theōahi was a celebration of very special occasions such as the graduation of students from the hālau hula at Kēē or the visit of an alii. On the day of the ceremony, skilled firethrowers climbed the steep cliffs to the very top of Makana Mountain laden with light, dry logs of pāpala or hau. When night fell, they set the logs afire and hurled them out over the ocean.
