Some say that hula dancers were originally only male but Hula was an important aspect of the ceremonial practices by both men and women, such as honoring a monarch or occasion, festivals, temple prayers, and even as a discipline used in training warriors.
However, in ancient times women were not allowed in the primary areas of the heiau (temple). It was the men who were designated as ceremonial temple dancers, practicing what is called hula ha‘a. The word ha‘a, as in the warrior-like dance, ‘ai ha‘a, means “humble.” Literally, ‘ai ha‘a means “eat humbleness.” It represents both strength and respect, qualities important in communicating with the deities or giving honor.
