Comments on Own Hula Training:
Clip currently under production.

Brief Info:
Lorraine's mother Rose Joshua was her primary hula instructor and is recalled as a very loving teacher to her four daughters. Lorraine's mother sent her to Mary Ho in Kaka`ako for a year, and she was a very strict instructor. She used to make them `ami against the wall for a very long time to improve their technique.
Lorraine's father felt kahiko was in conflict with their Christian beliefs so was against her learning anything connected to ancient ritual. However, he understood kahiko as the history of Hawaiians, so he told his daughters to respect it and be good listeners. Lorraine and her sisters were allowed to learn some kahiko from Henry P and Tom Hiona, who would come to their mother's Magic Hula Studio and teach them several chants and dances.
