NOTES: Every culture had its defining myth: Hindu Indians have their "Mahabharata," the Greeks their Homeric "Odyssey." For Native Hawaiians, perhaps no myth is more central than Pele and Hižiaka, the story of the Fire Goddess Pele and her enduring rivalry with her sister, Hižaka. Five years ago, the renowned dance company Halau o Kekuhi began the ambitious undertaking of assembling and recreating the legend for modern audiences, translating it to the contemporary stage by combining the traditions of Hawaiian chant and dance, this remarkable performance now comes to television for the first time in an exciting adaptation for DANCE IN AMERICA.
