On the beach at Nanahuki, Hiʻiakaikapoliopele learns “Ke Haʻa Lā Puna I Ka Makani” from her beloved friend Hōpoe. This mele hula captures the happiness they shared performing this dance on the shores with the wind caressing the hala groves of Puna, “Hula leʻa wale...” The dancers provide glimpses of Puna through their portrayal of the rhythmic sea swells, the gentle breeze and the graceful sway of the hala tree.
