Volcano Art Center’s Hula Arts at Kīlauea 2023 performance series continues Saturday, May 13th with a presentation by Nā Wai Iwi Ola under the direction of Kumu Hula Keala Ching. The performance begins at 10:30am at the pā hula in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Although, the event is free, Park entrance fees apply.
Nā Wai Iwi Ola Foundation is based in Kailua-Kona, and was founded to perpetuate the Hawaiian culture and practices through hula protocol and ceremonies, the use and study of the Hawaiian language and by embracing the stories of our kūpuna past, present and future.
The hula kahiko presentation will be presented authentically in an outdoor setting, rain or shine without electronic amplification. Audience members are encouraged to bring sun/rain gear and sitting mats. In the case of extreme weather, there is a possibility that the performance will be moved indoors to the Kīlauea Visitors Center Auditorium where seating is limited. These free events are supported by donations from members of the Volcano Art Center. Donations are welcome to continue future programs.
