Born and raised in Keaukaha, Kumu Hula Manaiakalani Kalua graduated from Kamehameha School in 1996 and received a BA in Hawaiian Studies in 2002 from Ka Haka ʻUla ʻo Keʻelikolani at UH-Hilo.  He has been an instructor at  Hawaiʻi Community College in the Hawaiian Life Styles-program, since 2003. His hālau, Akaunu opened in 2012 and is closely tied to the traditions of UNUKUPUKUPU and Hālau O Kekuhi.

This performance is part of a year-round series sponsored by the Volcano Art Center.  For the series, hula halau from across Hawai`i and beyond are invited to perform each month in a one-of-a-kind outdoor setting at the kahua hula (platform) in the Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park.

This 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.
