Featured Guest: Kaui Kanakaole
Kumu Hula
Hawaii ImageWaves crash against the distant black rocky cliff, salting the air. Kaui Kanakaole, the kumu hula (hula teacher) and her three students chant an oli, asking permission to enter the forest, and wait for a response. A breeze filters through the canopy, and the thick air parts, giving them their answer. They pick their way through the underbrush, beyond the grove of hala (pandanus) trees, to find the lauae (monarch fern) leaves that generations of hula dancers have relied on to create their lei.

When they are worn during hula, the lei embrace the dancers with a touch of the forest. Their carefully gathered garb, the vibration of their voices, the rhythm of their instruments, the patterns of their movements and the story of their mele (song) all work together to replicate the environment. With their performance, they are literally connecting to Laka, the akua (deity) of hula and the physical, environmental process that keeps the forest alive. This is why every single part of the process—from gathering, to dancing, and returning to the aina (land) once again—is filled with deep respect.

Kumu Kaui will be the General Session Guest Speaker at each event. See her video featured in our Hawaii-Rooted “Keepers of the Forest” campaign here Keepers of the Forest - Kaui Kanakaole.
