Ariki's Luau Show
In every celebration imaginable we trust the Holy Spirit to make the name of Christ known. Energized, uplifting wholesome christian entertainment, for all ages!
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. We believe there is only ONE true God revealed in three persons, God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Word made flesh and His sacrifice on the cross paid the debt for sin, to all men who will believe. We believe the gift of salvation cannot be earned but it is ours if we accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Savior. Our mission is to share the gospel message of hope that is only found in Christ Jesus!
The Benioni Ohana has over 40 years of entertainment experience, performing internationally throughout the Hawaiian Islands, U.S., Japan and the South Pacific. For TaituaAriki “Dad” being raised in Aitutaki, Cook Islands and New Zealand, drumming, strumming and singing were daily evening events. Our director "Hinali’i" is a native Hawaiian, raised in Honolulu, Hawaii. At the age of three Hinali'i started dancing hula, went on to perform for the visitors of the Lurline Cruise Liner at the age of nine. Hinali'i has many wonderful memories being trainded by her Kumu’s Rose Joshua, Uncle Tommy Hiona, and George Holokai.
TaituaAriki and Hinali'i have choreographed shows and performed in Bali Hai in Sendai City, Hokaido, Japan, the "Hula Hut Dinner Show" with Al Makahinu, "Disney World Polynesian Revue" with Kaui Brandt, "Here is Hawaii" with Keola Beamer Dinner Show, "Columbia Artist Polynesian Spectacular Show", "Drums of the Pacific" at Duke Kahanamoku's with Falaniko's, "Tihati's", "Tavana's", "Hulu Lindsey's Polynesian Show" and the "Royal Lahaina Luau Show." Hinali'i was also a freelance solo entertainer with Aunty Genoa Keawe, Blosson Kunewa, Kekua Fernandes and Andy Cummings, lead dancer for the Hawaiian Air Lines Promotional team throughout the U.S. and Internationally.
Answering Gods call, Hinali'i played an integral part in Gods redeeming of the HULA in the mid 1970's. As God wonderfully orchestrated, church doors began to open, Hinali'i danced in praise to the Lord to the christian hawaiian songs. Since then this continues throughout the US. They were honored to perform for the "First Baptist Pastor’s Christmas Dinner", "Metro West Nazarene" with Pastor David Vaugh, "First Assembly of God" in Honolulu with Pastor Douglas Gugudan, Pastor James Morrocoo in the production of the "Singing Christmas Tree" at the Neil Blasdell Center, Calvary Assembly for Pastor Mike Justice and Pastor Ed Garvin are just to name a few. Hinali'i also had a guest appearance and was interviewed on The 700 Club. They have entertained in many private V.I.P. homes and events from coast to coast, the list is endless!
