Honolulu, Hawai‘i - Moanalua Gardens Foundation (MGF) will present "Ke Alana o Moanalua…the Awakening of Moanalua," the 32nd Annual Prince Lot Hula Festival at spectacular Moanalua Gardens on Saturday, July 18, 2009, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The largest non-competitive hula event in Hawai‘i, the festival honors Prince Lot Kapuaiwa who reprised the once banned hula in the district of Moanalua.

A historical and cultural treasure, Moanalua Gardens is one of the most beautiful places in Honolulu on the island of O`ahu. Once a botanical garden, it is home to rare trees, foliage and historic structures.

"In 2009, we will add more hula protocol signaling a new beginning for the Prince Lot Hula Festival," said Alika Jamile, MGF President. "Moanalua Gardens Foundation will use our rich archival resources to enhance the hula experience for our dancers and spectators," he said.

Ha Hale o Kahala of Kumu Hula Leimomi Maldonado and Alakai Loren Kanoelani Chang from PLHF XXXI.

Hula hālau featured in the festival will come from the Leeward area of O‘ahu, where Prince Lot once invited his dancers from, as well as hālau from other parts of O‘ahu.

The event celebrates hula kahiko, ancient hula and chant, and will feature ‘auana (modern) hula performances as well. Dancers will perform on one of the few remaining pā hula (hula mound) in Hawai‘i.

Highlights include special opening ceremonies led by the Royal Order of Kamehameha I, an interactive poi pounding demonstration, a noon concert by the Royal Hawaiian Band, and a closing kanikapila jam session with the renown group, Ocean featuring Ocean Kaowili, Uncle Eddie Kamae, Mike Ka‘a‘awa and friends.

Named in memory of King Kamehameha V, Prince Lot, the festival was founded in 1978 by MGF and now attracts more than 8,000 residents and visitors each year.
