Kapuāiwa, Moloka’i, Hawaii

21 Jun

This image was taken in the royal coconut grove, Kapuāiwa, on the island of Moloka’i in the state of Hawai’i. The grove is just west of Kaunakakai, the main town on Moloka’i. The beautiful dancers are from a local halau (hula school).

A group of hula dancers is dwarfed by the tall coconut palms they are performing under.  The palms fronds sway gracefully in the sky, and the dancers sway gracefully on the ground.  As above, so below…

    Just FYI, the place is Kapuāiwa, not Kapuaʻiwa. Kapu-āiwa means deeply sacred kapu, or mysterious kapu, and is the name given to the coconut grove of Kamehameha V; it in fact bears one part of his full name: Lota Liholiho Kapuāiwa Kalanimakua Kalanikupuapaikalaninui Aliʻiolani Kalani-a-Kekūanaōʻa.
