The 41st Annual Prince Lot Hula Festival is set for this Saturday and Sunday in a new venue.   This event, now at ‘Iolani Palace, is cherished as the largest non-competitive hula gathering in the islands.  Twenty distinguished hālau will perform, as the Moanalua Gardens Foundation pays tribute to chant and hula from Hawai‘i Island.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa spoke with Professor Kalena Silva, who will be honored with the Namakahelu Oli Award.
