The Legacy

“As poʻe hula (hula practitioners) we cannot help but revel in the brilliant creativity of our kūpuna.  Our thoughts invoke their lessons.  Our voices carry their power.  Our bodies become their vessels.

Such is the power, purpose and function of hālau – the singular place where our collective breath and individual lives converge.  Each and every one of us consciously choose to walk this ancient path – and in doing so, ensure the cultural heritage of our future generations.

I am thankful, honored and humbled to share my life and path as we embrace all that the ancients offer us …”
