Film Screening: American Aloha - Hula Beyond Hawai'i

Thursday, December 12, 2019

The revival of the ancient art of hula tells of the rich history and spirituality of Hawai'i.

After years of being shadowed by stereotypes, the hula is experiencing a rebirth that celebrates Hawaiian culture. Hawaiians—wherever they live—are challenging misconceptions by redefining the evocative storytelling art across the American mainland.

This event is a part of our program series "Reclaiming Tradition, Reclaiming Health," running from November 4 - December 19, 2019, and accompanied by the traveling exhibition "A Voyage to Health," produced by the National Library of Medicine.
