Kumu Malia Helela is an authentic Kumu Hula: a recognized hula teacher, officially having graduated after 17 years training from the long and esteemed Hawaiian hula lineage of Pulu’elo Park. Conversant in Hawaiian, Kumu Mālia frequently composes her own original oli (sacred chants) and mele (songs) that celebrate Hawai’i’s natural beauty. In keeping with her tradition, she is an observant and reverent student of nature and keeper of the land – the ‘āina – helping with her family to maintain a heiau in Kailua.
