The Polynesian Cultural Center celebrates its 28th annual Moanikeala Hula Festival in memory of kumu Sally Moanikeala Wood Naluai on Saturday.
Learn about Naluai, known fondly as “Aunt Sally,” and her legacy as performers of all ages, from keiki as young as two years old to kupuna proudly showcase the song and dance at the center’s Hawaiian Village. Naluai, the center’s first kumu hula, trained scores of young Polynesians in the art of hula.
The festival takes place from noon to 2 p.m. and 3 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at Polynesian Cultural Center’s Hawaiian Village, 55-370 Kamehameha Highway in Laie. Admission is $12 or free for annual pass holders. Visit polynesia.com or call 293-3333 for more information.
