"Why is a woman like Maiki Aiu Lake, about whom this story has been written, remembered with such love? She was a performer of the hula, and there are many hula dancers. She was a teacher of the hula, and there are many schools and teachers. Why is Maiki still special? Throughout the pages of this book, the narrative of her life, or rather, the commitment of her life to the art of hula, is the recollection of why. Maiki left a legacy of the place of the halau in the imparting of the whole art and tradition of learning the hula.wThe place of beginning to learn is not on the dance floor but before the altar, where the offerings are put in place, and where the student comes into the presence of spiritual love and power. This is the remarkable story of Maiki's life, and how she came through so much sorrow to impart so much joy to others. Not only in her words, but most of all through what others say here, are we reminded of how special her legacy has become to all who know and learn to dance the hula. This is why hula is life."
