Enjoy hula kahiko performance with Halau Na Kipu‘upu‘u
The Volcano Art Center will present a hula kahiko performance at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 12, with kumu hula Micah Kamohoali‘i and Halau Na Kupu‘upu‘u in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
Hula halau from across Hawaii and beyond have been invited to perform each month in a one-of-a-kind outdoor setting at the kahua hula (platform) in the 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.
This performance is presented authentically in a natural setting, rain or shine, without electronic amplification. Audience members are encouraged to bring sun/rain gear and sitting mats.
This free event is supported in part by a grant from the county and the Hawaii Tourism Authority. However, national park fees apply.

Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication or a modification of policies and procedures to participate in this event should contact Desiree at 987-7288 or email email@example.com as soon as possible.
