Ab­sorb the Spirit of Hula

101 Things to Do (Big Island) - - DINING & ENTERTAINMENT -

In its au­then­tic form, hula is the most pow­er­ful ex­pres­sion of in­dige­nous Hawai­ian cul­ture that ex­ists. The chants and dance com­prise an oral his­tory of Hawai‘i’s na­tive peo­ple, passed down from a kumu hula (teacher) to each gen­er­a­tion.

Hula per­for­mances also abound at shop­ping cen­ters and schools around the is­land. If you’d like to learn the art of the dance your­self, look into tak­ing a class at var­i­ous re­sorts.
