Hālau Hula are pillars of Hawaiian culture, where cultural education, language, dance and storytelling thrive. Hālau have survived multiple disruptions throughout Hawaiʻi’s history including the deadly epidemics of 1848, being forced underground during the missionary era, World War II, and the advent of industrial tourism. How do hālau survive and thrive when the unthinkable happens? What can businesses learn from their traditional values, ethics and cultural passion to emerge whole after this pandemic?
