> Being born and raised on the mainland and in love with hula, I rely on the
> efforts of people like you all who continuously and so generously share what they
> know and love as well.

> Mahalo for sharing. In the early 60s, had the privilege of taking a few hula
> classes from Aunty Nona at her Waikiki studio, and also meeting her two young
> sons, Keolaand Kapono. Lots of thought and work given to this website..obvious
> that those who are involved are sincere and passionate about the hula.
> Mahalo nui loa!

> I love your site and I believe in your mission to preserve the hula and
> Hawaiian culture. Although it is much harder for me to obtain the resources
> being here on the mainland, I strongly believe in the importance.

> I want to write before I even go past your first web page. To open and hear a
> welcoming chant just sent chills up my spine. THAT WAS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!
> Thank you for what I am about to explore on your site. I have always been
> fascinated with Kahiko and the Ancient Chants of Hawaii. Not until I was 50 I
> had the chance to hula, travel and learn so much. I found a beautiful 75 year
> old woman who danced all her life, her love was the preservation of Ancient Hula.
> Family and the opportunity to dance with Hilo Hattie for many years also just
> blew me away. For one year now I have asked if she could teach me a few
> chants, Kahiko and some history of it all and "We'll see, maybe soon." was
> the most I could get. In that year I think I have proved my love for hula
> and the want to learn and she has agreed to start a Wednesday meeting with me
> and one other to pass what she knows. I am so very happy, I can't tell you
> how that makes my day.

> Aloha from San Diego!
> I am so happy to find your website and view the films of George Holokai! I was
> one of his many Parks and Recreation students 1977-78, and I'd go to different
> locations and take as many of his classes as I could. I'm so grateful to him for
> the over 30 hulas I learned, and even after all these years I still remember many
> of them. I'm glad he is still teaching, and I wish I could come home to Hawai'i
> and give him a big hug!

> There are no Halaus near me in southern Georgia and I have this emptiness
> inside that yearns for being educated on Hula, Chanting and all its history.
> Upon reading a few pages of this site, I broke out in tears! It justifies that I
> want to learn but that I have no resources near me. Your site gives me knowledge
> of what I am missing and that I need to try to find some way to fill this emptiness!!
