Halau O Keikiali’i
Ka Hālau – The Group
Hālau ‘O Keikiali’i is a traditional Hawaiian Cultural Group based in Elk Grove near Sacramento, California. Our goal is to educate the general public by learning about the Hawaiian people and their traditional customs, values and protocols. Besides having regularly scheduled classes, we strive to help perpetuate the rich culture of the Hawaiian people through educational workshops, performances and other cultural events.
Our primary focus is hula kahiko (ancient dance), which includes oli (chant), mele (traditional songs), himeni (modern songs), nā mea hula (arts, crafts, implements), lole hula (hula attire), ‘ōlelo (language), and mo’olelo (stories). We hope to reach people far and wide, touching people who may not be exposed to the Hawaiian culture and share with them the spirit of aloha. Visit our Events page to find any upcoming performances, workshops, or other events.
