Imua Na Keiki
By Melissa Kelsey
Twirling in circles with the audience clapping along, the Kindergarten class at Kaunakakai Elementary School performed a dance from the Marquesas Islands in French Polynesia, at the school’s May Day celebration last Friday. The theme of this year’s ceremony was Imua Na Keiki (Put Children First). Students persevered through sweltering heat to dance in modern hip hop, Hawaiian and other Polynesian genres.
