2011 Kahanamoku Klassic morning pule
« on: May 09, 2011, 05:22PM »
For those of you who are interested, the mornign pule that was chanted was actually done last year as well.  I did a write up and you can find it here:

This Mele Kahea is used when a hula dancer wanted to enter the halau, the place where hula is leanred.  It was a calling to the Kumu as a reqeust to be heard and be ready to receive instruction.  The Mele Kahea goes back quite a ways in Hawaiian History.


"You will be living in the haole time, and the wise thing to do is to move with the time, because time is a thing that belongs to no one....There's only one thing I ask of you, my children - You are Hawai'i, and I would appreciate that you remain Hawaii"
