Introducing the exquisite Miss Aloha Hula bracelet design for the year 2023. Agnes had mesmerized the audience with her captivating Merrie Monarch Kahiko performance with a heartfelt tribute to Kaumauliʻi, the esteemed last ruler of Kauaʻi and Niihau, with a graceful hula to the enchanting melody of Pole Lauaʻe O Makana by beloved Hula Master Henry Mo'ikehaokahiki Pā.
With this in mind, the bracelet showcases a splendid depiction of the lei mokihana, a revered plant symbolizing the essence of Kauaʻi, intricately intertwined with the timeless maile lei. This harmonious fusion of two iconic lei varieties embodies the profound connection between Agnes and her ancestral roots. Notably, Agnes's mother hails from the illustrious land of Kauaʻi, further elevating the significance of this design. Another element that is featured are two Ipu hekes on either side of the hand-engraved title of Miss Aloha Hula, representing her kumu, halau, and her life dedication to the perpetuation of hula and Hawaiian culture.
