KE ʻANO ALOHA
HULA FESTIVAL & COMPETITION 2023
Ke 'Ano Aloha started in February 2022. The Founder Kumu Kawena Mann, a native born Hawaiian, a hula student and a kumu hula with over 40 years of hula experience desired to create a special hula event that fully embraces the spirit of aloha. Aloha that permeates throughout the planning; throughout the interaction between planning committee members and participants; judges; and throughout all planned events, which includes: dinner show, workshops, and competition/exhibition.
The results of our first 2022
Ke 'Ano Aloha were very satisfying with 100 people attending our dinner show at the Kamakura Prince Hotel; over 100 combined students joining both Kumu Kawaikapuokalani Hewett and Kumu Chinky Mahoe workshops and 17 hula halau participating at competition/exhibition.
In 2023, we hope to further perpetuate this value of ALOHA as we continue to improve
Ke 'Ano Aloha for you.
This bundle of green ti leaves is called a puolo. A gift or makana is this puoloʻs significance.
The Ke ʻAno Aloha logo there are four kinolau (kukui, mokihana, lauae and lehua). These kinolau represent four special loea hula (hula expert) that are spiritually connected to our Ke ʻAno Aloha event, they are: Kumu Al Makahinu Barcarse, Kumu John Keola Lake, Kumu Chinky Kaliula Mahoe and Kumu Kawaikapuokalani Hewett.
As you continue to perpetuate hula, please remember that HULA is a gift of aloha from Hawaii and Hawaiiʻs ancestors to you.
It is our responsibility to ALOHA and MALAMA this gift of hula.
