Kumu Hula: Keepers of a Culture

Loading...
"The hula is the dance of the Hawaiian people and has been practiced since early Polynesians arrived in the islands around 500AD. Passed on from generation to generation by kahuna (priests and sages) and by kumu hula (master teachers), the hula has also been suppressed by 19th century missionaries and plantation owners, distorted by Hollywood movies, and exploited by the local tourist industry. In this film, shot at exotic locations throughout the islands, many of Hawaii's finest kumu hula reveal ancient traditions which have survived and flourished there for hundreds of years. This is Hawaiian culture as few outsiders have ever seen it: rich, expressive, colorful, and totally unique."--Container.
