Na Keiki O Ka Aina - Hoike

'The Children of the Land' are all fired up; bringing 'light to the darkness'. Mahalo (Thank you) to a very special Polynesian arts & music mentor, Uncle Philip Villatora; to all the keiki (children); and to the Hawai'ian champion fire-dancer Uncle Paul, who blessed this Hoike with ultimate Mana (spirit).

Fire-knifing is a historic Polynesian practice. This tribal, acrobatic and ceremonial practice is performed using a special baton equipped with a sharp knife (machete) ablaze with fire on one side; & a fire bathed end wrap on the other.
