The Volcano Art Center’s 2019 Hula Kahiko series kicks off on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at 10:30am with a performance by Nā Kumu Hula Pelehonuamea Harman and Kekoa Harman with Hālau I Ka Leo Ola O Nā Mamo.
The students of Hālau I Ka Leo Ola O Nā Mamo come from the Hawaiian language immersion K-12 school – Ke Kula ʻo Nāwahīokalaniʻōpuʻu. For the past seven years, their mission has been to perpetuate the Hawaiian language and culture through mele and hula. All classes are conducted through the medium of Hawaiian.
The performance will take place in a one-of-a-kind outdoor setting at the kahua hula (hula platform) in the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Audience members are encouraged to bring sun/rain gear and sitting mats. National Park entrance fees may apply.
These free events are supported in part by a grant from the County of Hawaiʻi Department of Research and Development and the Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority and individual funding from members of the Volcano Art Center’s ʻohana.
