Hula Voices presents an engaging, intimate “talk story” session with Hawai‘i Island’s kumu hula who eat, sleep and live lives centered on the practice of hula and its associated arts. Join VAC for an informative and fun hour as they share their hula genealogy, traditions, protocols, experiences, chants and choreography that are rooted in the ancient Hawiian practice of Hula. Each monthly event will feature a different kumu hula and occasionally their haumana (students).

This Thursday, August 10th, Desiree Moana Cruz will moderate the event with Kumu Kaho‘okele Crabbe presenting his hula experiences. Please join VAC in celebrating the Hula Arts at Kīlauea. These free cultural events are supported in part by a grant from the County of Hawai‘i, Dept. of Research and Development and the Hawai`i Tourism Authority. Park entrance fees apply.

Volcano Art Center is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization created in 1974 whose mission is to promote, develop and perpetuate the artistic, cultural and environmental heritage of Hawaii’s people through the arts and education. Please visit
