"Walking in the Footsteps of our Ancestors" Tour

The halau is invited to participate in a very special event in Aotearoa.  ( www.handsaroundtheworld.com.au).  We are being asked to travel with the Maori Star Basket Elders, Celtic Elders, Cherokee Elders, and Aboriginal Cultural Leaders from several different tribes of Australia, as they visit Sacred Sites and Places in Australia to uplift vibrational energies for global healing and international peace.  This fundraising campaign is to allow hula halau representatives to join in this very special cultural ceremony:  Kumu Ehulani Stephany, and two ceremonial hula dancers.  We are planning to join the tour in November and requesting funding as soon as possible.  The funds will cover air-fare from Hawai`i to Aotearoa and back, food, lodging, and ground and ferry transportation as we participate in "Walking in the Footsteps of our Ancestors" Tour.
