I have nothing negative to say about this years Merry Monarch. I think it gets better year after year and I love to see the new creations that each Kumu provides. Tradition is fine. I believe that we should know the basics before exploring different venues and then when using different venues and styles, we're all individuals, and some more blessed than others in creativity. I see no problem with that as long as they make it clear in motion what they're dancing about. With olelo being a part of being brought up today, I'm glad to see that because then na haumana will know what they're dancing about and can express accordingly. I enjoyed every halau that took the stage this year and they all should be proud of each other for making this another memorable one. Congratulations to all the winners and to all the halau that participated. You're all winners to me.

As always and exciting and true event!
However, the Camera Operators and the Sound Engineer's SUCKED! Also, "Kimo" is loosing his appeal--and seriously needs to be replaced. It's apparent Dimentia is setting-in and those mistakes took away from what was otherwise a beautiful event and unfairly detracted from the performances!
