Event Navigation

E Pili Kakou I Ho’okahi Lahui is a Hawaiian hula conference and retreat that has been held for over 19 years. Our program has a global reach and has been held on the Island of Kaua’i, Japan, Tahiti &Marquesas. In addition, we have held our retreats in Canada and California to include Sacramento and San Diego.

A multi-two day seminar in which non-hula dancers, hula students, leaders, experts, and teachers to come together in a common bond to celebrate the hula! They will learn, experience, exchange dances and ideas, share, meet new friends, increase their knowledge in hula, improve their history, language, usage of native plants in hula, improve their self-esteem and confidence.

Several levels and specialized classes and subject matters are implemented and conducted to ensure all interests and all ages will want to participate.

E Pili Kakou I Ho’okahi Lahui is a three-day event that brings together some of Hawaii’s most accomplished hula instructors (kumu hula) and cultural specialists to teach workshops in all styles of hula and chanting as well as to share the stories and spirituality behind the dance. The event also showcases many of the arts and crafts unique to the islands. The setting is non-competitive and open, which helps to
accomplish one of the main goals of this event, which is to foster a feeling of “lokahi” or unity amongst a diversity of hula practitioners worldwide. From its humble beginnings in 1998 with 100 participants mainly from Kaua`i only, the event has grown to host well over 400 attendees, hailing from all over Hawaii and the mainland as well as Japan, Canada, and Europe.

EPK is currently embarking on its 20th annual event with over thirty successful hula retreats across 4 countries!
