         Our Mission

               Hula Nation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire health and beauty
           through art and movement. Facilitating workshops to assist in developing skills for individuals
in urban and rural communities.


          Since 2012, Hula Nation has facilitated workshops on HoopYogini dance at various schools,
  yoga and wellness centers, and events around the NYC area, including festivals such as
      BAM Dance Africa, TAMA, Hampton's Yoga Festival, and Wanderlust. We've collaborated
        with artists across the US, creating pop-ups and other curated event. To date, Hula Nation
       has participated in over 300 events and festivals through New York and around the world.


                    In June 2019, Hula  Nation  began it’s international expansion.  Hula Nation had the  opportunnity
  to work with thee Kazo community in the city of Kampala , Uganda in colllaboration  with
                    Paper Fig Foundation, dedicated to empowering through fashion and fine arts, and IGC  Fashion,
                  a sustainable fashion brand working with different communities to make fashion more inclusive.
                         Hula Nation is expanding into global terrains, inspiring, and being inspired to create shifting change.
              In February 2020 Hula Nation returned to Uganda to implement and expand the capacity to do
                      impactful work to support the dreams of rural Ugandan people, especially the women and children
                       through art and movement workshops. Our objective was to create 100 dreamcatcher making kits  
                                  and macrame art for purpose on developing skills in craft-making to strengthen economic opportunities
   for local Ugandan women and families through ongoing workshops and
training sessions.


                            Born in Puerto Rico and raised in the Bronx, my work has Urban, Indigenous, African and Taino
                                influences and is guided by an innate sense of adventure. I create wearable fiber art and dream-
                            catchers as a way of celebrating health and beauty. I carefully source materials from artisans  
                               around the world, including a women’s cooperative in Guatemala
I began working with in 2021. 

                                           Movement is central to my vision as an artist. I teach hoop dance, art, and movement to communities
                    around the world through my nonprofit, Hula Nation. My artwork is designed to move too,
          adjusting to all bodies to foster self confidence and prove that we are all works of art.



                        My work as an artist , facilitator and educator  encourages community building by showing
                         people that we are part. of a lineage .
                            A family overflowing with massive amounts of creativity, radiance, and the power to create change.
