The Akoni Akana Kumu Award, identifying the kumu who best demonstrates the value of Poʻokela in preparing for Hula O Nā Keiki, was awarded to Kumu Uluwehi Guerrero. Hālau Hula Kauluokalā was the recipient of the Friends of Mokuʻula scholarship, which works to further each individual’s education in Hawaiian culture.

“Congratulations to all of the 2016 Hula O Nā Keiki winners and participants for their admirable accomplishments and hard work in honoring ancient Hawaiian tradition,” said Mike White, General Manager of Kāʻanapali Beach Hotel. “We are grateful to our participating kumu (teachers), haumana (students), esteemed judges, staff, volunteers, sponsors and the local community for their support.”
