What:

The Holoku Ball honors the beauty of the European influence style of dress worn by our Kupuna and Ali'i at formal events. One of the most famous Holoku gowns was made of peacock feathers, and was worn at the Jubilee of Queen Victoria by Queen Kapiolani. The Holoku ball, which was once held on the grounds of Hulihe'e palace, is now being perpetuated by the Kupuna (elders) of Na Wai Puna o Kona, a group that gathers every Tuesday at Kaniohale Community Center with Kumu Keala Ching.
