Just found a bunch of old video from past work in Fiji from the last 6 years so slowly uploading and sharing.
My auana kumu, Uncle George Holokai with dear friend and wonderful Kumu Hula in her own right Aunty Nona Beamer, both of whom I regarded as mentors and friend. Sharing his views on the state of hula 16 years ago. We have since lost both masters. Mahalo Maile Loo and the Hula Preservation Society for your continued work to help us remember their manaʻo lest we forget.
Our ʻohana in Fiji, check them out...VOU!
