Hula Hālau O Kou Lima Nani ‘E was founded in 1986 to coordinate cultural education programs that benefit the community of Hawai‘i. The hālau is a membership organization whose mission is to build a foundation based on hula and mele traditions through which people of all ages will increase cultural knowledge, promote Native Hawaiian values, develop appreciation for the Hawaiian language and arts, and support a Hawaiian lifestyle. Students in the hālau range from keiki (children) to kupuna (elders) and are taught all aspects of the hula tradition including practicing traditional Hawaiian values.
