Image5Since its founding in 1997, HCF has presented Hawaiian cultural events in the New York tri-state region including concerts and workshops in Hawaiian music and dance, traditional lu`au gatherings, Hawaiian lei and craft workshops, language classes, and traditional “talk story” gatherings with respected elders from the Hawaiian community. Some of the artists presented include Slack Key Guitar Masters,Keola Beamer and George Kahumoku, Halau Hula Ka No`eau, recording artists of Hapa, Keali`i Reichel and Tony Conjugacion. Through these activities, HCF fosters the development of a strong `ohana or community of individuals on the East Coast interested in keeping connected to a spirit of aloha and a Hawaiian cultural base.
