Nowelo I Kaua‘i Kuapapa

In Search of the Wisdom and Heatbeat of Ancient Kaua‘i

Presented by Kumu Hula Kēhaulani Kekua

Volume 1: Mai Ka Piko O Kaua‘i Wai‘ale‘ale

The Umbilicus of Sacred Life Cycles


Nowelo I Kaua‘i Kuapapa is a cultural educational series which highlights Kaua‘i’s wahi pana, or storied and celebrated places, through mele pule, mele oli and mele hula – prayers, chants and dances that have been entrusted to the lineage of Kaipuwai.


Kumu Hula Kēhaulani Kekua is a revered cultural practitioner and master teacher of traditional hula, born and raised on Kaua‘i. As the hiapo, or firstborn in her family, she was reared in the custom of hānai – freely given to be nurtured and groomed in hula by her maternal grandmother, Helen Kaipuwai Kekua Waiau. It is through her, that Kēhaulani inherited her family’s generations-old lineage and practices of Kaua‘i hula traditions.


Volume 1: Mai Ka Piko O Kaua‘i Wai‘ale‘ale is available to send to you as our mahalo gift for your donation to KKCR.

KKCR’s Talk Story Series

E malama, e hoʻomau a e hoʻolauleʻa pu i na mea a me ka nohona Hawaiʻi

Talk Story, known in Hawaiʻi as moʻolelo, is the tradition of personally sharing important stories to preserve them for future generations.

KKCR’s Talk Story Series is an ongoing cultural preservation project focusing on Hawaiian musicians who share their stories and songs for present and future generations. Kauaʻi Community Radio’s mission to preserve, perpetuate and celebrate Hawaiian Culture is fulfilled in part by our production of the Talk Story Series. Funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, KKCR has produced 31 Talk Story CDs since 2001 featuring Hawaiian musicians performing and talking story.
