We had such a great time performing hula and ori Tahiti or Tahitian in our hometown Chinatown-International District as a part of the Seattle Asian American Film Festival summer series! We met awesome folks at the lei-making station, and we're proud of all the beautiful lei that were made over great conversation, laughs, and new ideas. We hope to see some of our newfound friends at upcoming practices and lei workshops! Special thanks to SAAFF and to InterIM CDA for hosting and supporting such a fun and family-friendly event.
