 PUA ALIʻI ʻILIMA TO OPEN PRINCE LOT HULA FESTIVAL WITH GUEST RAIATEA HELM

Nā kumu hula Vicky & Jeffrey Takamine’s hālau, Pua Aliʻi ʻIlima, will open the hula presentations on the 40th Anniversary of the Prince Lot Hula Festival being held on Saturday; July 15, 2017; on the grounds of ʻIolani Palace. Joining Pua Aliʻi ʻIlima for their 9:30am hula presentation will be Hawaii’s “Sweet & Lovely” songstress, and mutiple Nā Hōkū Hanohano Award winner, Raiatea Helm.

Moanalua Gardens Foundation (MGF) has announced that Laukanaka Ka Hula…Throngs of Hula People Gather, will take place this year at ʻIolani Palace on Saturday, July 15, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Sunday, July 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The festival is the largest non-competitive hula event in Hawai‘i and honors Prince Lot Kapuāiwa, who reigned as Kamehameha V from 1863 to 1872 and helped reprise hula.

Founded by Moanalua Gardens Foundation (MGF) in 1978 as a gift to the community, the festival now attracts thousands of residents and visitors each year. Opening ceremonies will include the Royal Order of Kamehameha and presentation of MGF’s Kukui o Lota Award followed by a line-up of premier hālau hula (hula groups) who will perform both kāhiko (ancient) and ‘auana (contemporary) hula. The event will also feature a local craft fair, cultural demonstrations, and more.

This year MGF will honor noted chanter Cy Bridges with its inaugural Namakahelu Oli Award. The foundation’s highest honor given only once every five years, the Kukui o Lota Award, will go to three outstanding individuals for their service to our community, Senator Daniel K. Akaka, Charles M. Cooke IV, and Kumu Hula Vicky Holt Takamine. Leimomi I Maldonado and her brother Milton I will receive MGF’s fourth annual Malia Kau Award given solely to Kumu Hula who have advanced our hula traditions and supported the Prince Lot Hula Festival.

Local food and refreshments will be available throughout the day through scrips purchased only through Iolani Palace at the Barracks (Hale Koa).

There is no charge to attend the festival.

No commercial photography is allowed.
