Hukilau

The HUKILAU is one of the most classic auana style Hawaiian song and dance. There are many versions of this song as well as differing choreography choices. However, once you learn one version of HUKILAU, it is easy to learn other people’s versions. The most important thing is to understand the lyrics. Hula is a dance that tells a story in every song, the depiction is storytelling.

How do you say party in Hawaiian? Luau! The point of the song is a generalization of how we love to share food, song, and dance with all of our friends and family.

Below is a sample version of the Hukilau lyrics.

The Hukilau Song Lyrics

Oh we’re going, to the hukilau

Huki huki, huki huki, huki hukilau

Everybody loves the hukilau

Where the laulau is the kaukau at the hukilau

Oh we throw our nets out into the sea

And all the ama-ama come a-swimmin’ to me

Oh we’re going to the hukilau,

huki huki huki, hukilau

What a beautiful day for fishin’,

The old Hawaiian way,

And the hukilau net we’re swishin’,

Down at old Laie bay.

Oh we’re going, to the hukilau

Huki huki, huki huki, huki hukilau
