Volcano Art Center’s Hula Arts at Kīlauea performance series continues on Saturday, September 9th, featuring Kumu Hula Paul Neves with hālau Haʻa O Kinohi.

Kumu Hula Paul Neves comes from the lineage of Kumu Hula Winona Beamer. He opened Hālau Haʻa Kea o Kinohi in 2004 with schools in Hilo, San Francisco, and Kyoto, Japan.  Kumu Paul is a cultural practitioner of the traditional ways of the Kanaka Maoli, who emphasizes aloha as a lifestyle, ‘ohana (family),  alakaʻi (leadership/ discipline), and lokahi (unity), as the core of communal expression.

The performance is part of a year-round series sponsored by the Volcano Art Center. For the series, hula hālau from across Hawai‘i are invited to perform each month.  The performance begins at 10:30am at the kahua hula (platform) in the Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park.
The hula performance is presented authentically in an outdoor setting, rain or shine without electronic amplification. Audience members are encouraged bring sun/rain gear and sitting mats, and to arrive early as parking at the Visitor’s Center is limited, additional parking is available at the Steam Vents parking lot.

These free events are supported by donations from member’s of the Volcano Art Center. Donations are welcome to continue future programs. The Volcano Art Center is a non-profit educational organization created in 1974 to promote, develop, and perpetuate the artistic and cultural heritage of Hawai‘i’s people and environment through activities in the visual, literary, and performing arts.
