184 Back: Path to Luau and Imax
Just outside the Ali'i Luau is the Mission complex. At the mission complex you will find a chapel, mission home and schoolhouse, which is a Protestant (Evangelical) style structure. The chapel found in the Polynesian Cultural Center is a representation of early Christian chapels built throughout the Polynesian islands in the 1800s. The Mission home is similar to a house early Christian missionaries lived in and the schoolhouse represents schoolhouses Polynesians used to learn writing in their native languages. The early missionaries helped the Polynesians understand the importance of reading and writing in their native language.
