Please join Huraiti Mana for a fun cultural hula workshop at the Northwest Folklife Festival on Sunday, May 28 in the Seattle Armory Room from 1:00-1:45PM. Kalei'okalani will be hosting a 45-minute workshop focusing on hula basics and form as well as sharing about Hawaiian history.
Following the workshop, we'll also be hosting a lei-making station from 4:00-6:00PM in the Discovery Zone. We welcome all ages. Participants will learn about the significance of lei-making and how this Polynesian tradition is integral in the perpetuation of heritage and culture, with a focus on styles native to Hawaii. E lei no au I ko aloha. “I will cherish your love as a beautiful adornment.” Lei-making is a gift of love. Lei are not only decorative pieces; they share a spiritual connection with and are representative of the land they come from, the people who create them, and the people for whom they are made.
