Welcome

Momi's Mission Statement

My passion is to perpetuate and promote the meaning and wisdom of the Hawaiian culture. This is accomplished through my own ongoing training, as well as through teaching and performing.  I teach what I have learned by passing on traditional hula, Hawaiian language, chant and mele. While learning from my kumu and through my own classes and performances, it is critical that I maintain and mālama time-honored traditions. Always with aloha.
