Description

Based on the groundbreaking new book of the same name by Lucia Tarallo Jensen and Natalie Mahina Jensen, Daughters of Haumea recreates the roles of the ancient women of Hawai’i through an exciting blend of hula kahiko, hula ‘auana, and hula mua.

The book, Daughters of Haumea, is the winner of the 2006 Ka Palapala Po’okela award for excellence in general Hawaiian culture.
