This Saturday series presents a hālau hula (hula school) and their 'ōlapa (dancers) in The Royal Grove performing traditional hula where drumming chanting are the accompaniment. This contrasts with hula 'auana (modern hula) where singing and European-introduced instrument are the accompaniment. Costuming, instruments and stories are described in this showcase of hula enjoyed by our kūpuna (ancestors) and generations hence.
