Pua Ali‘i ‘Ilima (The Royal ‘Ilima Blossom) Pua Ali‘i ‘Ilima is the hālau hula (school of traditional Hawaiian dance) founded by Vicky Holt Takamine in 1977. The hālau was named by Vicky’s kumu hula, Maiki Aiu Lake, and means the Royal ‘Ilima Blossom alluding to her graduation from Maiki’s Papa ‘Ilima, the ‘ilima class, and as a descendant from Hawaiian royalty. The hālau participates in cultural festivals and events throughout Hawai‘i and the world, including the Prince Lot Hula Festival in Honolulu, Hawai‘i and the Pan Pacific Festival in Tokyo, Japan with Robert Cazimero.
