We had an incredible time hosting our dear friend from Tahiti, master Hirohiti Tematahotoa as a part of Huraiti Mana's Workshop Series! Hiro worked tirelessly with a never-fading smile through an entire weekend of non-stop 'ori! We welcomed dancers from across Washington including Renton, Whidbey Island, Seattle, Everett, and even some from Cali! To all our PNW 'ori sisters and feti'i, we thank you for sharing your time with us in our studio, supporting our goals to continue connecting with each other and contributing what we can to the amazing Polynesian Community here. We extend a sincerest māuruuru to Hiro for sharing his incredible wealth of knowledge and passion of his people, his culture, his language, and dance. Hiro is so full of life, never-ending creativity, and contagious laughter. We are so fortunate that he was able to make a visit to Seattle in his long journey across the world this year. Hiro, you are welcome back in our homes any time!
Keep an eye out for our next workshops coming up at the end of May! If you'd like to hear first about our workshops, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
