As the clouds move to the rhythm of the winds, so does Opua dance in harmony with the Mana (spiritual energy) of the Universe.
Celebrating the glorious magnificence of life, Opua dances the ancient Hawaiian Kahiko Hula.
In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Opua's dance honors the gods, tells stories about Aumakuas (ancestral guardians), the sacredness of life and respect for all of nature.
Opua's Tutu (grandmother) is her Kumu Hula (Hula Teacher). She taught her the powerful movements of the Kahiko Hula.
Tutu wove her Mana and Aloha into Opua's beautiful wrist and head leis. Tutu sewed a red Aloha dress and matching pants and wove a green grass skirt for Opua. Last Tutu adorned Opua's hair with a beautiful white Plumeria flower and wrapped a conch shell necklace around her neck.
Opua is a 10” tall cloth doll who was individually handcrafted on the Big Island of Hawaii with the greatest love and respect for all that is Hawaii. Her body is made out of doll skin and stuffed with high quality poly fill. The body is wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. All accessories are individually hand crafted.
