GUEST,David Folklore: Kanaka (Hawaiian) chanteymen (54* d) RE: Folklore: Kanaka (Hawaiian) chanteymen 09 May 09

Here is a description of a Maidu Hula Group keeping their traditions going :
"The astounding Hui O Ke Ao Malamalama Dancers from Shingle Springs Rancheria dazzled the audience in the late afternoon. Formed in 1997 by Rick "Kupapalani" Adams, the dance group members consist of descendants from Sacramento Valley Natives and Hawaiians who come over in the 1800's. There are now 27 family members and associates, most between the ages of 4 and 18, dancing with the group. Shingle Springs Rancheria is a Nisenan Maidu community with deep Hawaiian roots, and located as it is in the middle of a luxury housing development, is a social, cultural and geographic marvel. Hui O Ke Ao Malamalama proved that you don't have to come from Hawaii to do the hula and have the aloha spirit, it's in the genes!'
