Learning to Hula-hoop in Lowinia Village in Tanna Vanuatu

I have taught children in a village in Vanuatu, Maasai Warriors in Kenya, hooped at the government house in Palau and at a prison in the Philippines! Every time I bring out my hoop, there are always smiles, laughter and new friends!

We watched the Maasai Warriors do their jumping dance.I taught them to hula-hoop.
One warrior laughed so hard—he fell down!

I danced with the women and shared my hula hoop with them.
Thank you to the village for sharing their time with us and inviting us into their homes.

Watch a Maasai Warrior Performance and see them learn to Hula-hoop!
