This is a very special episode as we step inside the regal and historic ʻIolani Palace, the royal palace of our last monarchs of the Hawaiian Kingdom.

This amazing building has stood the test of time and change of Hawaiʻi and still remains.  Why is it important that we continue to support this palace?  Why should Native Hawaiians, residents of Hawaiʻi AND tourists alike visit this palace?  

All that AND MORE, including a special performance of a Queen Liliʻuokalani composition, is coming up on Aloha Authentic.

Aloha Authentic is a show celebrating Hawaiian culture.  Through conversations with local artisans, cultural practitioners, kūpuna and community members, we all learn more about Hawaiʻi, our native culture and unique lifestyle.

For our premier episode, we are so honored to have the chance to sit down with world renown Kealiʻi Reichel to talk about his story of hula, music and other cultural arts.  

Big mahalo to Aliʻi Kula Lavender Farm on the island of Maui for allowing us to utilize your ʻāīna for our backdrop for this pilot episode.
