HULA DANCER HONORED IN HONOLULU HAWAII.
'Auntie' Leilani Alama receives leis above her neckline in honor of her
and her sister Puanani Alama (not pictured) at the 63rd Na Hula
Festival at Queen Kapiolani Park, in Honolulu, Hawaii, August 10, 2003.
The Alama sisters were ranked among the best-known hula dancers in the
50s when hula girls were icons of glamour and Hawaiiana. Leilani Alama
has taught over three generations of Hula dancers and opened her first
studio in 1943. Both continue to dance and teach today. REUTERS/Lucy
