I’m glad everyone enjoyed the men’s hula kahiko vidoe below. I had questions about the dance so I thought I’d postmore information and the winner for 2009. Originally the dancers were men. KITV.com has the full list of winners and their pionts. Its important to know that dancers scores for both kahiko (ancient) and auana (modern) dance are combined for the overall score. So both types of dance must great not just one or the other.
O’Brian Eselu’s men’s hula kahiko (ancient hula) is a procreation dance.
Very well done, in fact, they won first place the kane (men’s) overall.
The first place overall wahine (women’s) group was Halau Na Mamo O Pu’uanahula. First place Miss Aloha hula (solo woman’s hula) was Cherissa Henoheanapuaikawaokele Kane.
Overall Brian O’Eselu’s Ke Kai O Kahiki halau won.
