Thank you Tekurio Family for the opportunity and love and for giving SoCal an annual memorable event such as HURA TAHITI 🙌
Around this time last year these souls were brave to take a jab for the first time at modeling laei samoa. Kahiau & Kekai for you two to be so willing & understanding of the respect and love between our cultures thank you! It shows through the way you both carried yourselves that day and everyday since.
My lovely taupous all exquisitely beautiful Nonosina girls of course Anika, Court, Jerrika, Sine, Ayva, Ryley and Ivana- the struggle was REAL that day and NEW--- I know 😬 I totally felt so bad afterwards but I promise YOU the pain subsides over time and you kind of get immune to it. It's an acquired pain lol Plus now my tuiga tying game is strong 💪(well stronger since it was already strong but I don't mean like my tying game has gotten stronger like tighter because what ensues is that it'll hurt more I mean stronger like more efficient where I tie it more better now so you suffer less eh you know what I mean.) What was greater than that excruciating pain-- were your hearts!! ❤🙏 You girls were so brave and courageous for not only taking on such a daunting task of modeling something you've NEVER worn before in front of hundreds of critics but also IN PAIN. Oh and let's not forget while also remembering choreography and runway timing☝but you did it for your culture, for the color of your skin, for your love, for your class, the ethnics, for the minority! for your family, your parents, your dance group, your people, for yourself and for me. 🙏❤ I will never forget it. I love you ALL! Y'all are some champions. (You too Allen and Austin lol)
P.S. Special shoutouts to the moms and Mrs. B for allowing us this day love you ladies!
What say you we do it again some time? 😎🙌❤😘 #Samoan #TAMAITAI #KuegisKreations #LaeiSamoa #SivaSamoa #Taupou #Tuiga #HuraTahiti2017 #NONOSINAxTAMAITAI
