The Hula Preservation Society (HPS) is implementing the Kamehameha I Statue community engagement component under our agreement with the North Kohala Community Resource Center in support of their conservation efforts.  As part of the community engagement, HPS has enrolled five Kohala kumu hula in two hula kiʻi workshop intensives at the upcoming Ka ʻAha Hula ʻO Hālauaola (KAHOH) World Hula Conference in Hilo, June 14 – 16, 2018. Auntie Mauli Ola Cook will share hula kiʻi as she learned from Auntie Nona Beamer, and Kumu Auliʻi Mitchell will teach hula kiʻi. KAHOH is supported by a contract by the SFCA Folk and Traditional Arts special project for Native Hawaiian Cultural Outreach funded through the National Endowment for the Arts partnership with SFCA. The conference runs from June 14 – 23, 2018. For more information and to register for the conference:
