Hula: The Soul of Hawaii

Hula is a dance in the Hawaiian Islands that has exited for centuries. Although Hawaiian dance is today mainly sought to be a form of entertainment, but what many people don't know is that is actually a religious dance that originates all the way from the goddess Pele or the volcano goddess. This site explains the history behind the cultural dance.
Just like the Native American dances, these hula dances are related to the culture and not only tell stories of their history but are also used in religious ceremonies.
