Hālau I Kona Mau Lima is a Maui based, non-profit organization dedicated to perpetuating the art of hula. Our mission statement speaks of our commitment. It is a simple phrase that means a lifetime of learning and kuleana (responsibility) to hold on to tradition where tradition is demanded and to create where creativity is allowed. This purpose has set a path for us, one of continuous growth, learning and holding on to what is true.
We are a performing and competing Hālau dancing both Kahiko and 'Auana. Competition pushes us past our comfort levels with a goal to better our own abilities. With each competition, we gain a better understanding of our hula technique and the meaning of the hula we perform. This commitment to excellence is achieved only by the dedication and commitment of each halau member.
