Kauai Travel Tips: Culture


[speaking Hawaiian] The hula bridges our past, and it also carries on the past, of course, to the future. It is the voice of our kūpuna, our ancestors, and at one time, there was no written language in Hawai’i, and it was the hula which kept the stories alive, so it is extremely sacred. It is our way to stay in contact with this ‘āina, this land that we call home and with our past. [children talking] We keep it alive by sharing it with our keiki (children), first and foremost, and then also sharing it with our visitors. Take what we share with you, keep it in your heart, and take it home with you. [speaking Hawaiian]
