Fa’aori is of Reo Tahiti, the Tahitian language, meaning “to cause to dance.” Through dance, Huraiti Mana has been able to grow a community of diverse, hardworking, insightful, and passionate Huraiti, “skilled dancers,” coming from all over Washington, from across the Pacific, and from all levels of experience with Polynesian culture, dance, and practices. Our First Annual Fa’aori serves to demonstrate the culture we have created together that embodies the deeply-rooted Polynesian values of aloha (love), ‘ohana (family), and ha’aheo (pride).

Join us as we feature ‘ono grinds (delicious food!) from Koloa Kreations Catering; vendors including Kiana’s Hawaiian jewelry, Franada Family Bake Sale, Wing Luke Museum, and more; a fresh palm-leaf weaving workshop; dessert by Cakes of Paradise; and a performance featuring all of our Huraiti in originally choreographed hula and ori Tahiti numbers. Come out to support your ‘ohana, from our youngest huraiti to our newest dancers!

Every ticket purchased comes with food and is entered into a door raffle for a grand prize!
