Halaus Pay Tribute to King David Kalakaua

E Mau Ana Ka Hula-A Tribute to King David Kalakaua Hula Festival is November 16-17 at Keauhou Shopping Center. The “merry” Hawaiian monarch (1836-1891) loved music and the arts and advocated for the dancing of hula, contrary to the wishes of Protestant missionaries.

The sixth annual event opens Friday with hula workshops from 1-8:30 p.m., presented by Kumu La‘akea Arista, Kumu Noelani Ka‘aina (Chang) and Kumu ’Iwalani Kalima. Classes are in the Dance Center next to Kona Stories; registration is at the door. For details contact administrator@nawaiiwiola.org.

Enjoy free Hawaiian performing arts by 16 different halau 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday in the Center Courtyard, along with arts, crafts and food booths. Serving as emcee, KAPA Radio’s Kumu Ka‘ea Alapa‘i will explain each halau’s style of dance. Kindly refrain from bringing outside coolers and food.

A Tribute of King David Kalakaua is sponsored by Kamehameha Investment Corporation, Keauhou Kahalu‘u Educational Group, Keauhou Shopping Center, Waimea Music Center, Sheraton Kona Resort & Spa at Keauhou Bay and Na Wai Iwi Ola Foundation. For info, visit, www.emauanakahula.org.
