Kuʻuʻānela Muniz
Kumu Kākoʻo – Kamaliʻi
aka “Tiny Human Entertainer”

” ʻAnakē Kuʻu is the sweetest kumu who has so much love and genuine care for everyone at kula and most especially the keiki of Papa Nāhiku. The keiki are always comforted by her presence.”

“Kuʻu is a loving and nurturing kumu kāko’o. She genuinely cares about the keiki and their well-being. She truly enjoys their company and watching them grow into their own person.”

“Always willing to kōkua her kula ʻohana, easy going and genuine!”

He kumu, kākoʻo, hoa, mana wahine! ʻAnakē Kuʻu is so loved by all of the keiki of Kūlaniākea. Each morning the keiki of Papa Nāhiku greet her with big smiles and pūliki! She is truly on a path to alakaʻi kumu! Her work ethic, kumu instincts, and aloha for keiki are characters you cannot teach. She is truly the hoe that keeps our class waʻa going in the right direction and making sure everyone is safe and cared for. She is an invaluable member of the Kūlaniākea ʻohana and I am so thankful and honored to learn and grow alongside her!

“Kuʻu has unconditional aloha for all keiki. She is a natural at being a kumu, and a great team player. She is especially loved by her keiki.”
