"Best of Hawaii" 2010: Our favorite Hawaii cultural events

Continued from previous page ...



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
