Kumu Kamaolipua Diane Grace
Kumu Diane Kamaolipua Grace is a native Hawaiian. Born and raised in Hawaiʻi, she grew up in Kuliouou Valley, on the southeast end of the island of Oʻahu. She now lives on Hawaiʻi Island, home of Pele – the goddess of fire and creation.
She is a Kumu (teacher); Kahu (minister and keeper of spirit, spiritual leader); and a Ka Haku Hoʻoponopono (facilitator of a Hawaiian mediation practice). Her passion and mission is to share her love for her Hawaiian culture. She believes that the values and traditions of her kupuna (ancestors) will help make a difference in peoples’ lives as well as make our world a better place. Like the voyaging canoe Hokuleʻa, the journey of Malama Honua – caring for our world – belongs to everyone, everywhere, and can mean learning a culture that is steeped in a loving practice called Aloha.
Through her talk-story style of teaching, she will open a door of understanding, appreciation, and joy in the dance, music, arts, language, philosophy, and spirituality of her Hawaiian people. She acknowledges all of her Kumu for her ka ʻike (knowledge) who include, first and foremost, her ʻohana (grandparents, parents, and ancestors) as well as her many nā kumu.
She invites you to join her and nā pua of Hālau Nāpua o Kalei Maoli Ola in a place of learning of what it means to Live in Aloha.
