Our strength, our knowledge, and our culture is preserved from our beloved Tūpuna. The history of Nonosina lies within Estella “Gram” Reid, our founder, and #WCW! Although she rules with an iron fist 😃 today we honor Gram, for the love, strength, and perseverance that has impacted over 52 years of dancers and many generations to come!

Red ('ura) is a common color adorning ourselves to dance! Red symbolizes passion, love, intense emotion, and is the favored color of the God "Oro". This is why our 2015/2016 costumes were the color red in honor of the passionate artists of the 'Arioi society.

This semester Nonosina is excited & honored to have Merrie Monarchʻs own Miss Aloha Hula 2010, Māhealani Mika, teach at our studio! We are all excited to learn hula from such a credible source like Mika. At Nonosina 'ori Tahiti is our main focus but we are striving to broaden our horizons through training with Mika in hula & siva Samoa with the Tama'ita'i team. Each island has a different focus when it comes to dance but the root purpose is all the same which is: to celebrate the land, language, and history of POLYNESIA! Weʻre grateful to have her time as she is constantly traveling from Japan-Hawaiʻi-LA teaching, making appearances & performing non-stop! You can see Mikaʻs latest project on Hawaiian Airlines inflight video when boarding the plane as she dances hula to the beautiful music of Kuana Torres Kahele! #MissAlohaHula2010 #MerrieMonarch #HawaiisOwn #MāhealaniMika #KilohanaJapan #Hula #AiHaa #LegDay #DancersAllYourNamesAreNowMARY

Ra'atira Pupu 'Ori Tiana N. Liufau and Aunty Riki have been asked to judge the 10th Annual Manahere I Ori Tahiti Competition in Northern California on July 29th-30th! On behalf of your Nonosina Family, we want to wish all of the dancers competing the best of luck & thank you Kawailehua ʻohana for having us judge your event every year! Faʻaitoito
