About this Item

Title

  • Unukupukupu Halau Hula

Summary

  • Unukupukupu is the traditional Halau Hula (Hula School) of Hawai`i Community College, Hilo, Hawai`i. Here ancient dances and songs, rooted in the sacred `Aiha`a Pele (Ritual Dance of Volcanic Phenomena) intermingle with the rigor of academic inquiry. To experience the particular fiery style of hula termed `Aiha`a Pele, one is trained to call up the fire within the body and to dance until sweat shines at the temples and forehead. Under the cultural and academic stewardship of Dr. Taupouri Tangaroto, Unukupukupu is a community of traditional dancers functionally aware that Hula is one of the world's sacred dances of environmental kinship and global connections.
