Description

Kumaka ka ikena ia Hiilawe
Ka papa lohi mai ao Maukele

There at Waipio Valley is the great waterfall Hiʻilawe. Stunning and unforgettable, this popular song offers a personal view of the site. Written by Sam Lia Kalainaina of Waipio Valley, the original version has many verses.

Kumu Hula Olana fondly remembers her mother dancing this song. It is special because of its upbeat melody and how audiences always were pleased with her performance. This song has a place in her heart because of the time as a child spent in the surrounding areas.
