Kumu Hula Iwalani Kalima with Hula Hālau O Kou Lima NaniʻE
Typically held on the 3rd (or sometimes 2nd) Saturday of each month, hula hālau from across Hawaiʻi have been invited to perform in a one-of-a-kind outdoor setting at the kahua hula (platform) in the Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park. This special site was realized through the vision of (the late) hula master Edith Kanaka`ole, kumu hula of Hālau o Kekuhi. The kahua hula is located just a short walking distance from the Volcano Art Center Gallery in an area known as Ka‘auea.
