Momi was born and raised in Ohio. After years of living in California Beach towns the family moved to Hawaiʻi. Momi was home. She began her hula training in 1977 with Māpuana deSilva, Hālau Mōhala ʻIlima, in Kailua, Kaʻōhao, Hawaiʻi. Hula became, and remains, the source of her passion. 



It is my passion to perpetuate the meaning & wisdom of the Hawaiian culture. This is accomplished through ongoing training, as well as through teaching and performing. I offer traditional hula, Hawaiian language, chant, mele and moʻolelo through weekly classes and community performances. I maintain and mālama time-honored traditions. My intention is always to remain pono. Always with aloha.

Momi was born and raised in Ohio. After years of living in California Beach towns the family moved to Hawaiʻi. Momi was home. She began her hula training in 1977 with Māpuana deSilva, Hālau Mōhala ʻIlima, in Kailua, Kaʻōhao, Hawaiʻi. Hula became, and remains, the source of her passion. During the next five years of intensive training, she learned to be a dancer, and eventually became a chanter and an alakaʻi (leader). This was the time of the 2nd Renaissance of Hawaiian culture. It was an exciting time of re-discovery and renewal of all things Hawaiian throughout the island chain. She began her hālau (school of hula) in 1983 on the Big Island of Hawai’i. That was the year Māpuana gave her the blessing to teach. During these years of immersion in all things Hawaiian she met and became friends with many kumu, dancers, chanters and writers. Those people are the na’au of Hawaiian culture and teaching today. Her passion is to share the hula knowledge that was so freely given to her during those years. She recently spent an additional 8.5 years studying again with her kumu in Hawai’i. Hula is the heartbeat and the heart of the Hawaiian people; in it you will find the history and the legends of an enlightened culture.
