Ka Hula Piko Photo 14th Annual Molokai Ka Hula Piko Festival
A celebration of the birth of hula. Papohaku Beach Park.

Ku'i I ke'a ~ Dance with the spark of fire
Ku'i I ka Wai Kahe ~ Dance with the fluidity of Water
Ke Aka Ku'i O Moloka'i ~ Such is the dance essence of Moloka'i

This is an ancient saying of Moloka'i regarding the true spirit and essence of the island's unique dance style. In life, fire and water do not mix. But in spirit, the essence of fire and water blend evenly together in the Ku'i or dance style of Moloka'i. The cultural focus of this year's Ka Hula Piko will center on the ancient dance styles of Moloka'i.
