Hula Halau photoKumu (teacher) Kāwika Keikialiʻi Hiwahiwa Alfiche has been a student of hula from birth and has been teaching and sharing Hawaiian culture and dance for over 10 years. A student of Kumu Hula Ray Kahikilaulani Fonseca and Uncle George Naʻope, Kāwika has also trained with such kumu, mentors and cultural specialists as Hökülani Holt-Padilla, Kehaulani Kekua, Harriet Spaulding, and Tiare Clifford.
 
Kāwika is the Founder, Director and Kumu Hula (Teacher) for the San Francisco based Hula Halau Aloha Pumehana o Polynesia (“APOP”), a Hawaiian Cultural dance group with over 100 students ranging from ages 5-75. The group has performed and participated in many cultural events, such as the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival, San Francisco Aloha Festival, Miss Chinatown USA Pageant, Arizona Aloha Festival, Ka `Aha Hula o Halauaola (Hilo, Hawai`i), Merrie Monarch Parade & Festival (Hilo, Hawaii), Native American Recognition Day and Heard Museum Native Film Festival (Phoenix, Arizona).
 
Kāwika developed a much-needed facility for the cultural group (APOP), where they continue to grow and flourish. He also continues to conduct Hawaiian Cultural workshops, presentations, and theater through music and dance. He has been the organizer and director of the annual, “Hula Gathering of San Francisco”(Ka ʻAha Hula o Kapalakiko), an event with lecture and workshops on Ancient & Modern Hawaiian Dance and Song, attended by over 100 representatives from all over the U.S.
