West Hawaii Today is proud to unveil our newest digital feature, “Community Connection.” This video series features a variety of community members sharing their talents for all amid Gov. David Ige’s stay-at-home order.
If you have a video you would like to share, whether it be a how-to, performance or presentation, email Laura Ruminski at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Debuting the Community Connection series is Michelle Kaulu Amaral, a premier hula soloist who retired in 2018 after a 33-year career at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel on the Kohala Coast. She shares “Hula Girl.”
Known professionally as “Kaulu,” she started dancing hula at a young age with various kumu hula and traveled the globe to share her aloha for the art, according to Kamehameha Schools, from which she graduated in 1976.
