Ka Lā ‘Ōnohi Mai o Ha‘eha‘e opened its doors with the blessings of both Kumu Hula O'Brian Eselu and Kimo Alama Keaulana on August 6, 2005 and sits under the instruction of a husband and wife team, Tracie and Keawe Lopes. Together as educators and practitioners of the Hawaiian Language and Culture they offer their students a learning environment steeped in history, upholding a rich legacy preserved in the mele hula and mele oli of old.
The hālau has been active since its opening, gracing a number of highly revered stages including the renowned Hawai‘i Theatre and participating in hula competitions including Hula ‘Oni Ē, Iā ‘Oe E Ka Lā, The Prince Lot Hula Festival, The King Kamehameha Day Hula Competition and the prestigious Merrie Monarch Hula Festival. The hālau is located in Pū‘ahu‘ula, Ko‘olaupoko, O‘ahu.
