Originally posted in The marketing for beach-related vacation destinations often capitalizes on the association of foreign beaches with partly naked bathing beauties. Hawaii was colonized by the U. One transformation was the hula.
I was a little concerned as I am thinking about planning a trip to Maui for my 80 yr old mother. I submitted her email address for a maui vacation planner. She is know receiving offers for a laui with naked hula performances.
I was a junior in high school, sitting on a table after school, when the Kumu Hula teacher of hula approached me and broached the subject. In that case, ten points to you. In what way is that an honor? Itchy grass skirts and ridiculously small coconut bras are unfortunately common misconceptions at this point—both of which I hope to clear up just a wee bit. First off, hula is not just a dance to us.
