Kuhai Halau O Mehana is a Santa Cruz based Hawaiian Cultural & Dance School, that opened its doors 19 years ago in Oct. 1989 by Mehana Thomas. As a Kanaka Maoli (Hawaiian by blood), Mehana was born & raised on the island of Hawai’i as her ‘ohana before her has. As many Hawaiian people do, Mehana has brought her culture with her when moving here and enjoy sharing the Art of Hula with the beautiful ladies of Santa Cruz. Once a year the Halau (school) holds a Fundraiser and features a different Hawaiian music Band from Hawai’i each time with dancing by Kuhai Santa Cruz.
Waipuna is one of the most well-know Hawaiian music bands in Hawa’i’i today…making up Waipuna are KALE HANNAHS, MATT SPROUT & KAWIKA KAMAKAHI.
