Welcome to Natibu "Hacha". Natibu "Hacha" was established in 2003 by Joel Larimer. The goal of Natibu "Hacha" is to build a strong foundation of traditional knowledge in all dancers. Though we are far from our island home, our hearts remember the beautiful islands and the culture that continues to nourish our lives. The spirit of inafa'maolek and aloha teaches us to be humble and respect others. It is our pleasure to share our culture here in Washington through song and dance.

Cultural dance is a way of life to which many people dedicate their lives. Cultural dance is more than just dancing. The movement and gestures performed by the dancers are just the surface. Underneath this is a rich culture that celebrates creation, the gods and goddesses, legends, history, and more. Deep knowledge is reserved for those who have earned it. People cherish what they have learned from the manamko'/kupuna (elderly) and hold that knowledge close.
