Moana’s Hula Halau receives OHA grant for Festivals of Aloha

This Friendly Market team charges through the Mitchell Pau'ole parking lot in the cart race as part of last year's ho'olaulea following the annual parade for the Festivals of Aloha.

Moana’s Hula Halau News Release

The Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) has awarded Moana’s Hula Halau a $5,000 grant to support Molokai’s Festivals of Aloha this coming October. Thanks in part to this `Ahahui Events Grant, we are able to continue to run the event over a three-day period.

This is the second year that Moana’s Hula Halau has been awarded an `Ahahui Event Grant to continue the Festivals of Aloha event. The Halau is very appreciative of the support from OHA.

This year’s Festivals of Aloha, themed “E Hi`ipoi i Ka Lei Aloha” (cherished is the beloved child) is being held Oct. 13-15 at the Mitchell Pau’ole Center beginning with the investiture of the Royal Court and honoring of our kupuna on Thursday, Oct. 13. Friday night will focus on the youth in our community, of course followed on Saturday by the annual parade and Ho`olaulea.

As always, there are no admission fees or charges. There will be Festivals of Aloha ribbons and T-shirts available for sale.

Without the OHA `Ahahui events grants, many of the programs for this festival could not happen.

Thank you Office of Hawaiian Affairs!
