Welcome to the Northwest Folklife Festival 2018 schedule!

Hula Cultural Workshop

Huraiti Mana is a Polynesian dance troupe based in Seattle, Washington comprised of family and friends and led by award-winning dancer Kalei'okalani Onzuka. We seek to empower our diverse students to become huraiti or skilled dancers through challenging lessons in hula (of Hawai'i) and ori Tahiti or Tahitian dance. Huraiti Mana is dedicated to creating a welcoming atmosphere infused with laughter, shared stories, and passionate work, perpetuating deeply rooted values of aloha, family, and pride. Culture is about encouragement and empowerment, and that is what we hope to share with you at Huraiti Mana. ​
