We want to send a big Mahalo to our November keiki cover models, Kahewai and Kaimalie Lay, and their family this month!

Kahewai is six years old, and attends Kula Kaiapuni O Paia Hawaiian Immersion at Paia School where he enjoys science.

Kaimalie is two years old, and attends preschool at Children’s Garden where she loves playing with her friends.

Mom is Coalette Lay, concierge manager at Maui Sights & Treasures. Coalette graced our cover fifteen years ago as a keiki herself! Coalette’s mom is Elaine Cuaresma, who has been in the concierge business for over 30 years on Maui.

Coalette shared, “Through having children, I have lost my mind, but found my soul. Both of my keiki have bigger than life personalities and are always laughing and loving everyone they meet.”

2018 hula o na keiki at ka‘anapali beach hotel: friday, november 9 – sunday, november 11

Ka‘anapali Beach Hotel is excited to announce the 28th Anniversary of Maui’s only solo keiki hula competition, Hula O Na Keiki. Open to students from around the world, the competition commemorates one of Hawaii’s richest traditions and will take place from Friday, November 9 through Sunday, November 11, 2018.

Mike White, Ka‘anapali Beach Hotel general manager shared, “We are proud to host the 28th year of Hula O Na Keiki, our solo hula competition showcasing the talent and grace of today’s youth. This annual event brings us together to share and celebrate Hawaiian culture and traditions of our island home through oli (chant), mele (song), and hula performed by keiki ages 5 to 17. Over the years, the competition has grown tremendously from its humble beginnings, a time when there were very few chants about Maui. Because of Hula O Na Keiki, there are 40 chants that have been written or revived from old Hawai‘i that are beautifully presented through hula. A critical element of the competition is the requirement that all contestants oli (chant). Learning and performing the oli strengthens and grows the knowledge and command of the Hawaiian language as well as their personal connection to beloved Hawaiian traditions. Throughout the years, many of the haumana (students) have since become kumu (teachers) and have their own halau (hula schools).” Continue reading ‘2018 hula o na keiki at ka‘anapali beach hotel: friday, november 9 – sunday, november 11’
