traditional Hawaiian dance at Linfield's annual Lu'au

Hui o Lōkahi

Hui o Lōkahi (formerly Hawai'i Club) seeks to share an awareness of Hawaiian culture with the Linfield community. The club traditionally holds an annual Hawaiian Lū'au in the spring and participates in other club-sponsored activities throughout the year.

Mark your calendars!

50th annual Lū'au & Hō'ike

Our 50th annual celebration will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2023, at 7 p.m. 


The annual Lū'au and Hō'ike is a celebration of Polynesian culture and incorporates dances from Hawai'i, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Tahiti! It continues to be a campus and community favorite. Guests gather in the fieldhouse to enjoy a country store full of items from Hawai'i, a beer and wine garden, and an authentic Hawaiian meal before the student-led performances.

First-year student Taetum Lynn Kalani '25 was more than ready to dance in Linfield University’s 49th Annual Lu'au and Ho'ike. You could say that it all began with her grandfather’s Linfield hooded sweatshirt.

Each performance was a beautiful celebration of culture, community and art under the theme of No Ka Lāhui, which means “for the nation.” This phrase grew out of a movement to protect sacred Hawaiian land from desecration.

Carrying On With Tradition
The Hui O Lōkahi Club’s (formerly Hawai’i Club) lu'au has been a longstanding tradition here at Linfield. Unlike last year, COVID-19 won't stop them from putting on a great show this spring, thanks to adaptive event planning and safety protocols.
