Hula has many roots, with various traditions offering different origins of the art – reflecting the beauty of the Hawaiian respect for multiple perspectives in a way that does not need to be mutually exclusive. Keahualaka Heiau, overlooking Kee Beach, is dedicated to Laka – the goddess of hula. Keahualaka is a historically significant site where some halau hula still perform ceremonies to pay tribute to Laka.
You can see hula on Kauai at festivals, events, competitions, live performances and luau. There are a variety of luau venues across Kauai including the Aulii Luau at the Sheraton Kauai Resort and Spa and the Grand Hyatt Kauai Luau at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort, both on the South Shore. You’ll also find the Smith Family Garden Luau in Kapaa and the Luau Kalamaku in the historic Kilohana Plantation. While serious study of hula is undertaken in a halau hula under the tutelage of a kumu hula, more casual lessons are offered at select hotels and resorts.
