The Story of the Lūʻau: Dance and Cooking Demonstration

Explore the story of the Native Hawaiian tradition of ʻau and learn why it plays such an important role in Hawaiian culture featuring Vicky Holt Takamine, renowned kumu hula (master teacher of Hawaiian dance), and ʻūniki (graduated) as a kumu hula from hula master Maiki Aiu Lake. As part of her graduation, Lake held a lūʻau to celebrate the occasion. This is a tradition Takamine continues as she presents lūʻaus for her graduating students. Kumu Vicky will present the story of lūʻau which will be followed by a dance presentation that would be enjoyed at celebrations and significant events, such as births, graduations, weddings and many more ʻohana (family) gatherings. 

 

Chef and Hawaiian cultural practitioner Kealoha Domingo elevates the art of cooking to a new level by honoring the connection to the ‘āina (land), kanaka (humankind), and mea ʻai (food). Kealoha learned the traditions from his father and is sharing that knowledge with his son, Kahikinaokalā. Domingo’s culinary inspiration comes from his kupuna (ancestors), ʻohana (family), life mentors and a network of dedicated friends who wholeheartedly support his endeavors. He will be demonstrating some of the recipes associated with the lūʻau. He will also share the healthful and sustainable character of these traditional food sources. 

 

This program received Federal support from the Asian Pacific American Initiatives Pool, administered by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center.
