Welcome to the section of the Hula Kahiko Research Library PROTOTYPE containing Chants.Ē Chants are what give life to hula, since hula is storytelling, and each chant tells a unique story. As a whole, chants chronicle the Hawaiians' beliefs, values, history, legends, love of the land, and love for one another. Without chant, there would be no hula.

Here you can learn more about the many stories of Native Hawaiians. The küpuna also offer their insights into the chants they remember learning or seeing performed.

As this is a PROTOTYPE, there are only a select group of chants which tie to the chosen Ancient Hula Types and Implements/Instruments for this demonstration project.
