“Hula is the language of the heart, therefore the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people.” - King David Kalākaua
Ancient Hawaiians had no written language, but used oral traditions like chant and hula to record such things as genealogy, mythology, history, and religion. Hula, the dance of Hawaiian people, was one means by which culture was expressed and chronicled (Merrie Monarch, 1).
