This is the 4th year that Kumu Hula Leihi'ilani Kirkpatrick is coming from the island of Kaua'i carrying the torch of her Kumu Hula, Lehua Kawaikapuokalani Hewett.  Truly a Hawaiian Renaissance man in his own right, he is known for being a bold catalyst of authentic hula training and the perpetuation of hula traditions in the mainland USA.  At our new Hawaiian Hula Arts  Village by Kumu Hula Leihi'ilani Kirkpatrick shares her experience in lei making, kapa-making and kapala stamping.   She has served as a lei judge in several contests in addition to being a Kumu Hula (hula teacher) with traditional 'uniki rites, a Kumu Huaka'i (excursion teacher), a Kahu (minister) licensed in the State of Hawai'i and a former Kahua (mentor) for Kamehameha Schools

ALL OUR WORKSHOPS CELEBRATE THE HEART AND THE LEGACY OF KING DAVID KALAKAUA

This year our workshops commemorate the passing of the First Hawaiian Renaissance Man and the last reigning King of Hawai'i, King David Kalākaua (November 16, 1836 - January 20, 1891) .  It is a call to boldy do what is right on behalf of the Hawaiian people, their hula and their culture...to be HE PUA LAHA 'OLE as he was in the mainland USA.  He pua laha 'ole is an 'olelo no'eau Hawai'i (Hawaiian proverb) which translates as a flower not common. It is an expression of one who is as choice and highly prized as a very rare blossom http://morningmanao.blogspot.com/2010/01/he-pua-laha-ole.html.  King David Kalākaua commanded the return of hula for the Hawaiian people and started a Hawaiian Cultural Renaissance in his days, let us all follow his example and continue to burn the torch to do the same for the Mainland USA.  

HAWAIIAN HULA INTERNATIONAL EMBRACES THE HEART AND LEGACY OF KING DAVID KALAKAUA

In the 1870's at 'Ulupalakua, Maui, King David Kālakaua planted his ring of cypress trees known as the HULA CIRCLE. It came to symbolize the reawakening of Hawaiian hula, culture and tradition amongst those who are Hawai‘i and hula lovers.  After 40 years without hula, King David Kālakaua commanded its return at his jubilee birthday celebration.  King David Kalākaua traveled internationally seeking help on behalf of Hawai'i, his people and his culture.  HHI's mission is CARING FOR THE HULA  / MIND, BODY, SOUL & SPIRIT.   Hawaiian Hula International's goal is to build a hula 'ohana known as Hawaiian Hula International, a grass roots organization with a worldwide vision of a strong and united hula ‘ohana that gathers regularly to renew their common commitment:  CARE FOR THE HULA AND SHARE ALOHA. 

EXPERIENCE ONE OR MORE SESSIONS OF OUR 3-DAY HULA INTENSIVE WEEKEND FOR ALL LEVELS 

Participation in the Hawaiian Hula Workshops and the Hawaiian Hula Arts Village by Kumu Hula Leihi'ilani Kirkpatrick is also designed for those who may be interested in being a performing member of Hawaiian Hula International, a collaboration of all hālau hula (hula schools), Polynesian dance groups, hula worship ministries and individuals.  Whether you are a hula dancer, lei maker or kapa designer, we invite you to join us in sharing what we have collectively learned.  The first performance scheduled is at the 2019 SAN DIEGO HO'OLAULE'A, the annual Hawaiian Cultural Festival to be held the weekend of May 4-5, 2019 at De Anza Cove.  We will also be a part of its Hawaiian Cultural Village in which Kumu Hula Leihi'ilani Kirkpatrick's Hālau Ka Lei Kukui Hi'ilani Mainland USA Extension has served for the past 4 years.
