From site: Religion

Hula?? In Northfield?? Yes, and aloha! Come see this "halau" of 8 Hawaiian men dance traditional hula on the Weitz Center stage.

Saturday, April 7th, 2012
7:30 – 8:30 pm / Weitz Center Theater
Halau Kiawekupono O Ka Ua for a night of HULA

Halau Kiawekupono O Ka Ua hails from the island of O'ahu, Hawaii. Their genealogy goes back many generations. Kumu Hula Dietrix Jon Ulukoa Duhaylonsod had his 'uniki on the Big Island of Hawai'i, April 6, 1997, after which his own kumu, Al Makahinu Barcarse, gave him blessings to carry on the tradition.  The halau will be in residence at Carleton April 4-8, and give a cultural exchange with Native American drummers and dancers at the American Indian Center in Minneapolis on April 5.

The performance is free and open to the public.  If you would like to reserve your free tickets, you may do so by going to this website:
