Halau Hula Ka Lehua Tuahine and Kumu Hula Hiwa Vaughan, whose love for the hula began at age 3. This love has led her to study under the traditions of na Kumu Hula Kimo Alama Keaulana, Kealoha Kalama, Leimomi Ho, Chinky Mahoe and Aunty Mae Loebenstein, culminating in the formal rite of ‘Uniki (graduation) under the auspices of Master Kumu Hula Mae Kamamalu Klein who hails from the Ma`iki Aiu lineage. While studying under Kumu Hula Chinky Mahoe at age 10, Hiwa won the title of Miss Keiki Hula (1985) and under the tutelage of Master Kumu Hula Mae Ulalia Loebenstein, she won the Merrie Monarch title of Miss Aloha Hula 1995. Hiwa hails from a musical family and has traveled throughout Europe, China and Japan with her parents, Ipolani and Palani Vaughan, sharing Hawaii’s rich cultural traditions through song and dance. Her Hālau is known for it’s firm foundation in footwork and adherence to those hula traditions given to her by the masters under which she has been fortunate to study.

Hiwa educates her haumāna in all aspescts of the hula: Oli, `Olapa, `Auana, `Olelo and hula implement making. Each student is required to make their own hula implements so that this art, which is such an integral part of the hula, may continue to be practiced.
