Our Mission Statement:  This is our time to share the Hula and our culture, because it is something we truly love and respect. Through our learned principals, we shall pass down to the generations, just as those before us. Confidence, humility, and a true nurturing for those around us and all that we are blessed to share, allows Hula to flourish.

About our Hālau

image10

Our Hālau is a traditional Hula School.  We teach ages 12 and older, kane (men) and wahine (women). We offer classes in hula kahiko (ancient hula), hula `auana (modern hula), oli (chant), and Hawaiian culture  under the direction of Kumu Hula Blaine Kamalani Kia of Oahu, Hawaii and Kumu Juni  Kalāhikiola  Lovel of Sacramento, California.  We are the largest and longest running Hula school in Montana. We have been teaching since 1993 in the beautiful Flathead Valley.  We share our love and respect of Hula by performing at community events and  with students at school enrichment programs. 

 We are supported by the 501C3 Organization, Launahele, (The Forest Groves) whose mission is to share and perpetuate the Hawaiian culture and Hula.

Kumu Juni Kalāhikiola Lovel

  

Kumu Juni Kalāhikiola Lovel was  born on the island of Kaua`i.  Kumu Kalāhikiola started Hula at the age of eight and has studied under several Kaua`i Kumu Hula over the years. Kumu Kalāhikiola opened the Sacramento branch of Hālau Ka Waikahe Lani Mālie in September of 1999, and Antioch in March of 2001. Our Montana school joined her Hālau in 2005. She is proud to teach the hālau vision: to enhance and sustain strong cultural and spiritual values by better educating the hula practitioner to care, support and respect the dance, so, as they aspire to their full potential, they can spiritually and humbly make a contributing impact (through example) to the community and all walks of life. She is also proud of the Hālau mission whereby all properties of knowledge, wisdom and cultural aspects belonging to the dance as passed down from generation to generation, shall be maintained by the Hālau principals for the benefit of all who are part of the dance.
