Our mission is to perpetuate the ancient art form of hula and other traditional cultural practices.

The goals of Lālākea are to:


To demonstrate oral traditions, teachings and ways of transmitting knowledge through the generations.


To provide a learning and enrichment platform for hula practitioners and cultural learners from Hawaiʻi and around the world to encourage the preservation of the ancient art forms of Hawaiʻi.


To educate practitioners about the need to protect and nurture our fragile environment to ensure continual access to plants and resources that are necessary to maintain the culture.
