Time: Saturday, 6/20. 10:40-11:05PM
Location: The Hawaiian Airlines Stage at Hudson River Park’s Pier 26

Hālāwai and New York Outrigger are pleased to present Halau Na Pua Mai Ka Lani Nuioka on the Hawaiian Airlines Stage at the Liberty Festival in Hudson River Park’s Pier 26 as part of the 2015 Hawaiian Airlines Liberty Challenge on Saturday, June 20.

Halau Na Pua Mai Ka Lani Nuioka is a relatively new halau branch here in New York City. Both alaka`i, Christopher Chung and Tristan Vizconde, look to continue the perpetuation of hula and Hawaiian culture, with the guidance of their Kumu Hula, Kale Pawai, who is based in Kalihi, HI.

Halau Na Pua Mai Ka Lani translates into ‘The Many Different Flowers from Heaven.’ It is said that Queen Lili’uokalani favored the children, calling them the flowers (Na Pua) of Hawaii. It is from that saying that Kumu Kale named his halau, which started in June 2002.
