OUR NAME
Our hui (group) name, Makamae Melia O' Polynesia, translates to Treasured Plumerias of Polynesia. Our instructor, Rhea Riego Nunez, spent her childhood in Hawaii. As a keiki (child), her fondest memories are of her Kumu (teacher) handing out Plumeria flowers to all of the children - to tuck behind their ears before each dance practice. Those memories have been carried forward, and now grace the name of our hui.


OUR BACKGROUND
From Hawaii to the mainland, Rhea combined all of her memories, experiences and passions - and created Makamae Melia O' Polynesia. In 2001, Rhea plus a handful of talented students founded the group at California State University, Sacramento. At its inception, Rhea taught dances of the many Polynesian cultures - including Hawaii, Tahiti and Maori. Five years later, Makamae Melia O' Polynesia continues to grow strong, with over 85 active members including dancers, drummers and artists of all ages and ethnicities.


EVENTS AND COMPETITIONS
Makamae Melia O' Polynesia regularly performs at various cultural events and private parties. The hui also regularly competes in regional Tahitian competitions - including the Kiki Raina Tahiti Fete, Heiva i Reno and the San Jose Tahiti Fete.

As we continue to grow, we would like to extend a warm welcome for everyone to experience Makamae Melia O' Polynesia's Aloha spirit.
