MOLOKAI

Molokai Ka Hula Piko

Oral tradition has it that hula began on Molokai and was spread to the other islands by Laka, now regarded as a goddess. This three-day festival celebrates the roots of hula, with cultural excursions and lectures, culminating in a whole day of music and dance, with guest hula halau (hula troupes) from as far away as Japan. Unlike the Merrie Monarch Festival, Ka Hula Piko is not a hula competition. It’s a hula celebration, in authentic Molokai style, complete with local crafters and food.

Mitchell Pauole Center, Kaunakakai, (800) 800-6367, www.molokaievents.com


2011 dates: May 12-14
