Kekuhi Kanahele Keali‘ikanaka‘oleohaililani and Kaumakaiwa Kanaka‘ole, a mother/transgendered (mahu) daughter duo, will explore the meaning of traditional Hawaiian indigenous thought as expressed through the island’s cultural practices. They’ll explain the meaning–and environmental kinship–behind hula (dance ritual), mele (poetry text), and leo (vocalization). This rare glimpse into Hawaii’s time-honored traditions is anchored in their own practice, perspective, and ecological knowledge. The next night (February 14), they’ll be performing as part of Town Hall’s Global Rhythms series in an enchanting evening of music and dance.
