"Hula's high priestess was tuned to nature"
by Cynthia Oi

People who knew Iolani Luahine tell stories about her mystic abilities. Some say the dancer,chanter and teacher of Hawaiian culture--known as the high priestess of hula--had powers that defy explanation.

Dorothy Thompson, who annually shepards the Merrie Monarch hula festival, was a close friend of Luahine's.Auntie Io could call up the wind and the rain and could make the animals do her bidding. Thompson said, that Luahine's greatest gift was dance. "Her dance was her life and her story itself", she said. "Io was such a beautiful person, an extraordinary dancer.
She seemed like she would go into a trance. and her movements were like nobody else's."

Luahine was born Harriet Lanihau Makekau on Jan.31,1915, in Napoopoo on the big Island. She was raised by her grand-aunt, Keahi Luahine, who was a proponent of the ancient Kauai school of hula and who began teaching her hanai (adopted) daughter to dance when the girl was four years old. When struck by an illness that affected her eyes, a kahuna nui (seer) was consulted. the kahuna nui said the child had to be renamed Iolani, the name for a native hawk, and soon her eyesight was cleared. Luahine, who died in 1978, gained renown worldwide. She was invited three times to perform at the National folk Festival in Washington,D.C.,and was named a "Living treasure" in 1972. She was a free spirit"a person who absolutely knew who she was," said Maggi Parker of the Kawananakoa Foundation. Thompson recalled a rainy day in Hilo in 1969 when Luahine was to march in a parade. "she told me the parade had to start on time,at 1 o'clock, because the rain would stop for only two hours." "It poured cats and dogs, at 1 o'clock on the nose the rain stopped, and at 3 o'clock the rain came down.

Alexander P. Hussey was remarried September 17, 1862 to Makanoe Kaaikaula Kalei Kauwilaha, according to Hawaii Marriage Book 28, page 19. The marriage was also recorded in Hawaii Marriage Book 78, page 119. The groom was then shown as a resident of North Kohala, Hawaii.

The bride was of Hawaiian royalty, a daughter of Nihowehilani and Naweluokekikipaa, according to Beatrice Mileka Hussey Kailiponi. She was born in Kohala about 1838. At age five she was betrothed to the son of a Hawaiian king, but her father objected to the contracted marriage and sent her to the jungle in hiding under the care of an older brother. The brother built a temple for her in the jungle and surrounded it with a stone wall 15 feet high with only a narrow passageway for an entry. He stationed himself above the entryway and killed at least one of the king's soldiers who were searching for Makanoe by lassoing him and hanging him with the noose. Later Makanoe was placed in a school operated by the church mission for her protection. She remained in the school until Alexander P. Hussey made his proposal of marriage.
