For Hawaiians, the hula is not just a dance, but a way of life. Yet while most Americans know only the stereotypes of 'grass skirt girls' from old Hollywood movies and tourist kitsch, the revival of the ancient art of hula tells of the rich history and spirituality of Hawai'i. American Aloha discovers a renaissance of Hawaiian culture through music, language and dance as it continues to grow in California. Following three kumu hula, or master hula teachers, the film celebrates the perpetuation of a culture-from the very traditional to the contemporary- as it evolves of distant shores. With more Native Hawaiians living on the US mainland that on the islands, the hula is a living tradition that connects generations far from home to their heritage. Revealing the challenges of cultural survival through the struggles of Hawai'i's past, American Aloha is a proud reminder of the power of reclaiming tradition for communities creating a home away from home. Featuring Kumu Hula Sissy Kaio and Hula Halau 'O Lilinoe Na Pua Me Kealoha, Kumu Hula Mark Keali'i Ho'omalu and Na Mele Hula 'Ohana, and Kumu Hula Patrick Makuakane and Na Lei Hulu I Ka Wekiu.
