Beginning at sunset, a conch shell call and torch lighting signal will start the ritual for Lele Kawa, also known as cliff diving. According to Hawaiian legend, the last chief of Maui, Kahekili, proved his spiritual strength by jumping from sacred Puu Kekaa (now commonly known as Black Rock) and plunging into the ocean below.
