The 10th Annual Ke Aloha Maku Competition was held at Great Oak High School this Saturday. The event is put on by Ekahi Ikaika Ohana and organized by the 5 captains; Leilani Mendoza, Maxeene Quiambao, Kathleen Keng, Jordan Valdez, Adrian Aduna.

Ekahi Ikaika was formed by a small group of friends, from different schools, who wanted to get together to share their passion for Polynesian dance. From there, they created the first Ke Aloha Moku.

Since then, Ekahi has grown so much and has brought the unionization within all high school ohanas throughout Murrieta and Temecula in the annual event of Ke Aloha moku. This year, Dance Troupes from Chaparral, Paloma Valley, Temecula Valley, Murrieta Mesa, Vista Murrieta & Great Oak High Schools participated.

Ke Aloha includes performances from all high school Ohanas and Hakas, a solo competiton, and an all boys Haka performance.

Congratulations to all of the winners and everyone who danced in this years Ke Aloha Maku Competition.

Aloha!!
