MERRIE MONARCH FESTIVAL 2011 Hâlau Keali'i O Nâlani

My first book, HULA LULLABY (Little, Brown 2005) was inspired by my dear friend, Namaka, and her Hula Hâlau Keali'i O Nâlani.  They modeled for me and Kumu was kind enough to check my text for cultural accuracy.  Friends from the Hâlau even helped promote HULA LULLABY by performing at a few book events.  This past week Namaka returned with the Hâlau to perform at Merrie Monarch.  As always, they were amazing!  Here's the video:
