Hula Moon with Kainoa/Music by Randy Smith

In 1889, Robert Louis Stevenson was walking on the shores of Ho’okena. He heard a mother and child weeping as the little girl was torn from her mother’s arms, placed in a dory and rowed out to a schooner. She was sailed away never to be seen again. She was a leper child bound for Molokai. This song was written by Randy Smith and the hula is choreographed and performed by Kainoa.
