Volume I: : 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.
