With its first classes starting in November of 2004, Hālau Kekuaokalā’au’ala’iliahi, under the direction of ‘Iliahi and Haunani Paredes, began its hula journey with 75 brave haumāna who were willing to give the young and inexperienced pair of kumu hula a chance.

Now, 15 years later and with over 300 haumāna, ‘Iliahi and Haunani look back over their many blessings: lives have been interwoven and hearts touched; an ‘ohana flourishes.

Hālau Kekuaokalā’au’ala’iliahi humbly presents KE’ALA’ILIAHI, a fragrant offering of aloha celebrating 15 wonderful years of hula: sharing mele, hula, and stories from their lei of memories, and honoring those who have made lasting impressions on their lives.
