Kaua`i World Challenge Canoe Race

Kaua`i World Challenge Canoe Race

Once again, members of Kahiko halapa i Hula Alapa`i o Keahi chanted and danced for paddlers in the Kaua`i World Challenge canoe race.

Last May, Halau members conducted a traditional welcome to Kalapaki Bay for competitors in the Kaua`i World Challenge canoe race. Organizers were so impressed with what we did, which organizer Tom Bartlett called “the most intense performance I have seen in 40 years of living in Hawai`i”, that they requested a hana hou at this year’s event on Saturday, May 13.
