UMU DAY HOSTED BY TONGAN COMMUNITY RESOURCE CENTER

Exciting News! Umu Day is just around the corner, happening this May! Join us as we celebrate the time-honored tradition of Umu, where families come together to cook delicious meals in an earth oven. It’s a beautiful way to bond, share stories, and enjoy mouthwatering food straight from the earth.

In Polynesian culture, the practice of cooking in an Umu holds deep significance. Passed down through generations, it embodies the spirit of community and connection to the land. The process involves carefully layering hot stones, banana leaves, and a variety of foods like taro, yams, fish, and meats. As the ingredients slowly cook, flavors meld together, creating dishes that are both nourishing and rich in cultural heritage.

Umu Day is a cherished occasion where families gather to honor this tradition. It’s a time to teach younger generations the art of Umu cooking, ensuring that this vital aspect of Polynesian culture continues to thrive. As the aroma of the Umu wafts through the air and laughter fills the space, it serves as a reminder of the resilience and unity found in preserving age-old customs. So mark your calendars, and join us in celebrating Umu Day—a time to connect, feast, and keep the flame of tradition burning bright
