Ka ‘Aha Hula ‘O Halauaola Participants Help to Replant

Hula dancers came from California, Washington, Virginia, and parts of Kauai to attend the 2014 World Hula Conference, as well as to spend some quality in Niumalu with Mālama Hulē‘ia.  After helping to pull out the Indian fleabane weeds, and replanting with  ʻaeʻae, ʻākulikuli, ʻahu ʻawa, , kīpūkai, and ʻuki, the dancers feasted on an ono lunch featuring Calvin Ho’s kalo poki.  Then everyone got into a couple of double hull canoes and paddled up the Hulē‘ia to see first hand the harm that red mangrove is doing to our river and the ‘Alekoko fish pond.

Mahalo nui loa to the 21 hula dancers who demonstrated great aloha ‘āina by helping our project. Mahalo also to Calvin and Katherine Ho for coordinating and making this event possible.
