Hula Preservation

The Hula Preservation Society is soliciting community support to assist in their effort to document hula styles. Led by Nona Beamer, noted hula master and culturalist, the society is dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of hula.
     According to Beamer's research, there are 242 types of ancient hula, 25 dance instruments and 82 animal dances including those for the manö (shark), `ïlio (dog) and the kölea (plover). Contributions to the 501(c)3 organizations will assist in documenting he varying nuances of the hula as practiced by hälau throughout Hawai`i. Beamer learned her hula from her grandmother, Helen Desha Beamer, great-grand-mother Isabella Hale`ala Miller Desha, and mother, Louise Beamer.
     Marking its first anniversary this month, HPS has received numerous donations from businesses, education institutions, foundations and individuals. Tax deductible donations may be sent to the Hula Preservation Society, 3319 Pähoa Ave., Honolulu, HI 96816.
