Aloha Festival
Tempe, Arizona
Halau Hula Napuaokalei'ilima

    On March 10, 2012, Kumu Hula (master hula teacher) Kehau Chrisman returned to the annual Arizona Aloha Festival in Tempe, Arizona with her dance group Halau Hula Napuaokalei'ilima to perform for their seventh consecutive year.

    The halau imported four-thousand plumeria flowers from Hawaii to make leis for all the dancers.  On Friday evening, March 9, the members of the halau gathered in Phoenix to string the leis.  Then on Saturday they danced for 40 minutes on the Mountain Stage in the Tempe Lake Park.  Here is a 10-minute video of their lei-making and dancing.
