Founded in 2004, Hālau KekuaokalāʻauʻalaʻIliahi has brought many honors, awards and much grace to the Maui Nui community under the artistic vision of Nā Kumu Hula ʻIliahi and Haunani Paredes.

Viewers can tune in to “Mālama I Ke Ahi”, a special performance and talk story from the Castle Theater as they share their return to their teachings and source of knowledge, reflections on the late Loea Hula Aunty Pat Namaka Bacon, and the beauty that nurtures their creativity and demand for perfection.
