The Nā Momi Hoʻoheno oral history series was created to capture the treasured life stories of our Hawaiian people so that future generations might be enriched by these priceless moʻolelo of our cherished and unique way of life.
This season, we were inspired by Women's History month to capture videos showcasing three distinguished wāhine Hawaiʻi. Just in time for the upcoming Merrie Monarch Festival, our second interview features Mae Kamāmalu Klein, a well-known Kumu Hula from the hula lineage of Maiki Aiu-Lake.
Aunty Mae was born on Oʻahu in 1932. She taught hula actively for 30 years, leaving a legacy of hundreds of haumāna and dozens of Kumu Hula.
