There are 2 basic types of hulas and they are the ancient (kahiko) style and the modern (auwana) style."KAHIKO -"
The kahiko style is harder to do. It requires dedication and commitment and years of serious training. This is the true hula of our Hawaiian culture. It embodies the beliefs we hold in the sacredness of life, the power of our deities and their descendants on earth, procreation and the respect for all things. It is Hawaiian.
"AUANA –" This is the style most people in the world are familiar with. It's fun, far easier to learn and remember and more commonly seen. As in the Kahiko, this style tells the story with the hands. It can be stylish and elegant with long gowns, beautiful leis and flowers in your hair as well as fast paced with swishing skirts.
Aunty Mahealani is a Kumu Elele Na Kupuna. This translates to mean that she is a messenger for the Ancestors. She shares this knowledge through playshops called Ho’opono Pono Ke Ala. Her playshops help people find and develop their sense of self-worth and bring balance into their lives. It does so much more than I can explain here. As a result of her classes, she keeps very busy and this summer I’ve had the privilege of participating with her. | alohaspiritaunty

One of my goals has been to find the connection between Japan and Hawaii in the ancient times since there seem to be so many similar ideas in rituals, about gods and about spirituality in general. From Dec 20th, 2005 to Jan. 2006, I finally made myself go to Okinawa and the Ryukyu Islands for 3 weeks to see the traces.
