Edith Kanakaʻole Foundation

Founded in the spring of 1990, the Edith Kanakaʻole Foundation is a Hawaiian cultural-based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Established on the vibrant traditions and rich cultural hertiage of the Kanakaʻole family, it is the Foundation's mission to elevate Hawaiian intelligence through cultural education founded on the teachings and traditional practices of Edith and Luka Kanakaʻole.

Introducing: The Haʻa Condition

Hula is art, nature, and on the surface, entertainment. Especially in regards to high-performance clasical hula dancers hula is physically demanding. For this reason, the Edith Kanakaʻole Foundation and Hālau o Kekuhi have produced The Haʻa Condition, a short guide written specifically for hula ʻōlapa.


The Haʻa Condition provides basic information concerning hula ʻōlapa including ceremonial, lifesyle, and kinesthetic habits a dancer should exhibit. We have made the publication available to download either in PDF or ePub format. This project was made possible thanks to funding provided by Hawaiʻi Tourism through the Kūkulu Ola Program.
