The Hawaiian culture is a rich and beautiful culture that is all about community and caring for each other. This ancient and indigenous tradition is part of our history with Hawai'i being our 50th State. Their ancient form of storytelling, the Traditional Hula is the foundation and the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people. It is communication through movement. Before the missionaries and Maxwell Freedom Long brought a written form of language to Hawai'i in the early 1800's, hula carried their historical records from one generation to the next. It is their living history, telling their myths and legends, stories and values through songs, chants and music accompanied by dance. It is like a breath of life that is exquisitely embodied and expressed in patterns of movement and sound. It is symbolic of how we move in the world and interact with others. It is about actively pursuing the qualities of character that constitute a life of goodness and love. A "spiritual person" is one who goes to great lengths to cultivate the qualities of loving-kindness, compassion, forgiveness and mercy in their lives.

In having the opportunity to go back and reconnect with this ancient knowledge and ways of living, that is all about family ('ohana) and caring for each other, we have a wonderful opportunity to learn how to go forward by remembering through Love that we are all one people - one family, regardless of the country, culture or background that we originate from. It helps us to maintain harmonious relations with our heart, mind & spirit, the sacred land and the human family to co-create the world and the life we want in our every day reality.

Kaleo has been fortunate to have lived and studied with master teachers both in Hawai'i and on the mainland during the last 27 years, and she is now bringing this cultural awareness of Hawai'i to those here on the mainland, and especially in the Southeast US to those who do not have the opportunity to experience this gentle, loving tradition.

This Cultural Awareness Education Program is offered to both adults and keiki (young ones) in presentations and classes, especially through schools, libraries and community centers.
