Hula Kahiko in Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park
2015 Hula Kahiko Performances

Saturdays starting at 10:30 am

Hula halau from across Hawai`i and beyond have been invited to perform in a one-of-a-kind outdoor setting at the kahua hula (platform) in the Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park.  This special site was realized through the vision of (the late) pre-eminent hula master Edith Kanaka`ole, kumu hula of Halau `o Kekuhi.  The kahua hula is located just a short walking distance from the Volcano Art Gallery in an area known as Ka`auea.

This sacred spot affords the kumu and haumana (student) a pristine view into Halama`uma`u, home of goddess Pelehonuamea.
