What a great day!
Full of old memories and friendships
The Kalani Islanders was formed In Carson California in the early 70's. By Frank & Moana Chang. This group was made up of children ranging in age from 5 to 18 Members of the group spanned across the Southern California area and We covered the Islands of Hawaii, Tonga, New Zealand, Fiji, Samoa & Tahiti. What set our group apart from others was not only the intensity in training and learning the true songs and dances, but that we did sing and dance and did it DAH BES! Kela Norris
Another incident I remember was when we went to "Catalina Island." We all got sea-sick! It was an overcast morning when we boarded the ship. The trip was rough with choppy waters. Then we arrived at "Avalon" to refuel. After, we sailed along the coast line to "Two Harbors" were we performed and slept in bunkers! When we arrived we had to transfer to a small boat which took us to shore. It was a trip to transfer all our luggage and footlockers of costumes because the waters were so choppy. Then someone was chased by a "Buffalo!" There were buffalo chips all over the place. I remember the island to be parched and barren - brown grass everywhere. It was a trip to remember!
"Giddy boy! What are you doing?".... Giddy boy said... "I stay camping"
No practice, It was a free for all
and we could do whatever we wanted &
not get busted for messing around!
....no duck walks here!
