The 42nd annual Prince Lot Hula Festival

 July 20, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Sunday, July 21 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. 


 

Special Performances by Halau Hula of Na Kumu Hula Robert Uluwehi Cazimero, Karl Veto Baker and Michael Lanakila Casupang. The festival will also feature a Hawaiian themed craft fair, and cultural demonstrations.

 

The Prince Lot Hula Festival is the largest non-competitive hula celebration in Hawaii. It honors Prince Lot Kapuaiwa, who helped reprise hula in the 1850s and reigned as Kamehameha V from 1863 to 1872.

 

Twenty-two halau hula will perform both kahiko (ancient) and auana (contemporary) hula over the festival weekend. Halau from every major Hawaiian island have been invited and their kumu have been encouraged to include dancers from their out-of-state branches.

 

The opening ceremony on Saturday will include the Royal Order of Kamehameha, and presentation of MGF’s Malia Kau award to Kumu Hula Iris Naleialoha Napaepae-Kunewa of Hawaii Island. She is the last haumana of hula legend Lokalia Montgomery.  MGF will honor chanter Kamuela Chun from Hilo with its Namakahelu Oli award. It will be followed by a program in her honor by hula sister Vicky Holt Takamine, Kumu Hula of Pua Alii Ilima.  

 

On Sunday at 11 a.m., Halau I Ka Wekiu, led by Na Kumu Hula Karl Veto Baker and Michael Lanakila Casupang, will perform a special tribute to fire goddess Pele featuring 90 dancers.

 

The Prince Lot Hula Festival was founded in 1978 by MGF as a gift to the community. It now attracts thousands of residents and visitors every year.
