My name is Hinatea, given to me by my grandma as Hina was said to be the Goddess of the Moon in Polynesia. The call of my Polynesian roots was loud and it pulled me back to my heritage, therefore I became a Ori Tahiti teacher (Tahitian traditional dance). During my time in Europe and Polynesia, I got the opportunity to dive deeper in Tahitian culture but also to connect with other Pacific cultures and dances, such as Hawaiian Hula.
ANCIENT HULA KAHIKO
I will have the pleasure to share with you a hula kahiko (ancient Hula). For Hawaiians, the moves and songs honour the earth, the sea, the sky and the ancient gods. Hula is a celebration of life as well as a reminder and reinforcement of our connection with nature.
