Stock Photo: Joyful Movement Pacific Islander Woman Hula Dancing on Beach at Sunset
A woman of Pacific Islander heritage dances hula in soft, low-key light on a cloudy evening at a pebbled beach in Washington state. Her ethnicity is part Hawaiian and part Tongan. The weather is deeply cloudy with just a hint of sunset at twilight, with misty mountains in the far background. The water is calm and clear with small ripples.
Her dress is a traditional pāʻū, or pau, which she wears along with a long beaded necklace, engraved silver metal bracelets, and a white Tahitian gardenia flower behind her right ear.
This woman is a beautiful example of joyful movement. As a trained practitioner of traditional dance, her movements are strong and graceful.
