NA PUA O LAKA foregrounds the perpetuation of the Hawaiian culture in Southern California. Sissy Ka’io is a kumu hula, or teacher of Hula, who both explains and demonstrates how to teach the Hula. The focus is on her male students, which harks back to the origins of the dance and breaks the stereotype of the hulas as mere exotic entertainment.
