Hālau Ha'a Kea o Mokihana is a traditional hālau hula located in the Washington D.C. metro-area, and was established in 2006 by Kumu Hula Paul K Neves. Mokihana is the name of his wife, Wanda Mokihana Neves, and refers to the rare lei of Kaua'i. This Hälau was named in her honor. Kumu Hula Akala Nahikulani Neves began leading the Hālau in 2013. The kuleana of the Hālau was then passed to Kumu Jenn Kēhaulani Riddick in 2016. Our colors are green, black, and white. Green represents the mokihana lei of Kaua'i, and the constant growth of us as haumana and as a Hālau. Black is the inclusion of all colors, meaning all are welcome. White symbolizes our spirituality and pure intention
