Emily Does The Hula

Emily danced a Christmas Hula at our church last week.

The gourd is called an "epu". It is a traditional implement in hula. The girls tap out a beat on it.

The sticks are called "puili sticks". They are made of bamboo and are also used to tap out a rhythm.

Ben calls them "Emily's Angry Sticks" because when Emily is practicing with them and concentrating, she looks angry.

The hula was beautiful! All the girls had matching skirts and leis and they did a wonderful job!

I was so proud!!
