Ulu Maika is a traditional Hawaiian game, similar to lawn bowling, that dates back to ancient times. It involves rolling stone disks, which are flattened and rounded, down a specially prepared path or course. The objective is to get the stone disk to roll between two upright sticks placed at the end of the course. This game was not only a form of entertainment but also served as a way to improve warriors' skills, as the rolling technique and aim required for Ulu Maika were similar to those needed in warfare. It was also a popular sport among the Hawaiian royalty and commoners alike, reflecting its cultural significance in Hawaiian society.
