Aloha ‘ia ‘oukou!

Pacific Islander Festival has gone virtual this year! Below is the link to this year’s program booklet:

I had the wonderful opportunity to share what PIFA means to me and my experience in the Polynesian dance world and our Hula Halau. Pages 14 and 15 feature our Halau’s performance from last year’s PIFA, the following pages 16 and 17 are my contribution and story. Also attached in case you have difficulty accessing it.

As a prior crown and Miss Pacific Islander of San Diego (I actually say what year in my bio), I was also blessed with the opportunity to emcee this year’s festival with this Miss PIFA 2020 and two of my former Miss PIFA sisters. Both, with whom I get to share the Miss PIFA legacy and grow up with.

I had the hardest time recording my bio, as we were expected to say where we were from, and to talk about who came before and the legacy that we’re currently perpetuating. But it truly is such an honor to be a big part of a Pacific Islander run non-profit organization that provide a small piece of everyone’s island homes here in San Diego.

Virtual PIFA 2020 will be broadcasted this Saturday, September 26th at 5:00pm via (PIFA) Pacific Islander Festival FaceBook page. If you haven't already liked them, please do!

Our Hula Halau has been given another opportunity to open the entire festival and will be showcased as the first performance. I submitted our two performances from the Na Palapalai concert of November 2019. We hope that you all can support and watch!

Mahalo nui loa always for your support in the perpetuation of Hula and to carrying on our late Kumu Hula Kehaulani Wilson's legacy. I love you all beyond words can express.

E Malama Pono,
Mahealani Taisague

Na Palapalai In Concert A Hawaiian band was formed in 1995 by friends, Kuana Torres Kahele and Kapulanakehau Tamure in their hometown of Hilo, Hawai'i. The two were known for their musical talents from an early age. They added bassist and fellow falsetto singer, Keao Costa who helped to solidify the distinctive sound known...

Last weekend our Halau was blessed with another opportunity to learn from the world renown Kumu Hula Kuana Torres Kahele. We had a total of 20 Haumana that were able to attend in Redondo Beach. We are always so grateful for opportunities such as these. Mahalo to Auntie and Kumu Hula Mohala of Hālau Hula Nā Meakanu O Laka O Hawaiʻi for always inviting Na Pua ‘Ilima and welcoming us with so much Aloha and for inviting us to perform alongside you all in Na Palapalai’s concert in November. Mahalo again to Kumu Hula Kuana Torres Kahele for calling us “troopers” and sharing your beautiful mele and hula with us. Mahalo also for allowing us to dance Lana’ika’ula for you before our long trip home, it was such an honor (not to mention nerve-wrecking) experience to share with you. I cannot wait to bring it all back to the Halau to share! 🌺

Aloha kakahiaka ‘oukou!

In lieu of the many preparations for our San Diego County Fair performance, I just wanted to take a quick break and share something really neat!

Our fearless leader Mahealani Taisague was featured in the Filipino Press newspaper over the weekend, promoting Asian and Pacific Islander cultures! We are so excited to have the opportunity to share our Aloha with the county again this year!

And don’t forget, our performance is as follows:
Sunday, June 30th, 2019
6:00pm - 7:00pm
Albertsons’s Fun Stage

We appreciate all of your support of our Hula Hālau! Have a great week!



Happy Aloha Friday! ❤️💚💛 One of my favorite artists and Tahitian songs!
