"A luau (Hawaiian: lūʻau) is a traditionalHawaiian party.
In ancientHawaii, men and woman ate their meals apart. Commoners and women of all ranks were also forbidden by the ancientHawaiian religion to eat certain delicacies. This all changed in 1819, whenKing Kamehameha II abolished the traditional religious practices. A feast where the King ate with women was the symbolic act which ended the Hawaiian religious tabus,
and the luau was born."
