Hālau Malanai under the direction of Kumu Hula Liana Leiʻʻilima Aveiro is an offshoot of Hālau Hula Ka Noʻeau. Kumu Liana studied under Kumu Hula Michael Pili Pang for more than 20 years graduating as a Kumu Hula through traditional uniki ceremony, and passage. Their hula geneology comes from master Kumu Hula Auntie Miki Aiu Lake.
The Hālau is located at Konoho Kuahiwi in the uplands of Waimea with haumana from age 4 to adult women. Hālau Malanai’s name was given by Kumu Hula Pili Pang and takes us to one of our core Hula auwana “Waika. “ Located in this area our Hālau Malanai carries the name of the distinct Breeze that is clean, cool, and refreshing. A breeze that promotes love on many different levels.
