As I hear of Maggie entering hospice in San Jose…


Time it was
And what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence
A time of confidences

Long ago it must be
I have a photograph
Preserve your memories
They’re all that’s left you.

Simon & Garfunkel

Halau Napualikolokelani, under the direction of Junko Wong. trained hard for this competition and Haruno Terayama took 1st place in the solo.

Preparation for the performance at the dress rehearsal.




And then she won!

haruno wins_5

haruno wins_9

haruno wins_6

The group danced auana and kahiko and came in 2nd to Seiko Okamoto’s halau, Na mamo O Kaleinani. I’m biased but I thought our girls were better!


Music for the auna solo and group was performed by Ahumanu: Liz Morales, Marja Lehua, and Kekai Robinson.


Haruno will go on to Maui to compete in the KuMaiKa Hula competition at the Maui Arts Culture Center on Sept 5, 2017. She’s going to have to work hard!
