Malia's Hula honors the miracle of life. Join her in a celebration of life’s joys and abundance!

As the sunlight gently caresses the calm ocean waters, so does Malia dance in harmony with the Mana (spiritual energy) of the Universe. Celebrating the glorious magnificence of life, Malia dances the ancient Hawaiian Kahiko Hula. In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Malia's dance honors the gods, tells stories about Aumakuas (ancestral guardians), the sacredness of life and respect for all of nature.

Malia's Hula attunes us to spirit and gladdens the heart.

Malia'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 Malia's beautiful wrist and head leis. Tutu sewed a green Aloha dress, matching pants and the outer Pa'u (skirt) with a Lehua flower design. Lehua, means "Flower sacred to the Gods" in the Hawaiian language. She also wove a grass skirt for Malia. Last Tutu adorned Malia's hair with a beautiful white Plumeria flower and wrapped a conch shell necklace around her neck.

Malia 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. Malia is a one of a kind Hawaiian Art Doll. Every bit of her has been lovingly handcrafted, to create a new friend who will last a lifetime.
