About This Organization

Founded in 1976, Kumu Hula Hōkūlani Holt-Padilla formed the Pā‘ū O Hi‘iaka on the island of Maui. This school teaches and embodies the practice of hula and its related subjects. Hōkūlani believes that the art of the hula touches all Hawaiian cultural knowledge. It also allows people to learn about Hawaiian values, philosophies, stories, protocol, health practices, plants, clothing, adornments, and more.

In addition, the hālau offers other types of ceremonies, conferences, cultural gatherings, performances, and workshops, all while remaining a leading force in the cultural side of Hawaiian life, the hula, and our community.

Hula Is More than Just a Dance

This practice is a way of life. Over the years, Pā‘ū O Hi‘iaka has actively participated in a myriad of hula competitions, including:

  • The King Kamehameha Day Competition
  • The Merrie Monarch Festival
  • The Queen Ka‘ahumanu Festival Competition
  • The Maui Mall Hula Competition

Pā‘ū O Hi‘iaka has classes for adults in kahiko (traditional hula) and auana (contemporary hula).

We hope to see you on December 1, 2018!
