Thank You to Na Hula O 'Wahine
Wai-nani, High Chiefess of Hawai’i, and Linda, enjoyed wonderful day of laughter, hula and da kine grind at the Na Hula ‘O Wahine Luau. This event is held to raise funds to ensure the continuation of colorful Hawaiian traditions. Bright costumes, festive stage design, and tables laden with sprays of fruit and flowers bring the magic of the Islands to Los Angeles once a year. It is a beautiful way to spend a day full of Aloha.
