Hū a’e ke aloha I ku’u na’au. Transitioning out of a time of kapu, focus, and clear purpose with these amazing wahine....missing them already. Mahalo nui to each and every one of you for sending your heartfelt messages, texts, calls etc. We are extremely grateful for your support. We are humbled to share the Merrie Monarch stage with hula practitioners we admire and love. This journey was filled with good, tough lessons, these lessons are our most cherished prizes.
Mahalo to Aunty Luana Kawelu, Kathy and all those who work to make the Merrie Monarch a true cultural celebration.
Mahalo to the Merrie Monarch judges. You have a such a difficult task as there were so many great hula presented this weekend. Mahalo for taking on that kuleana and carrying it through with integrity and grace 🙏🏽 Ah yes, it feels so good to be back on #myislandmaui, kinda good to be back on social media and super good to with my ‘ohana again.
