Tiare Noelani ChangBeloved Daughter, Mother, and Kupuna, passed away on March 7, 2018 at Kaiser Hospital Moanalua at the age of 52. Noelani was born on June 1, 1965 in Honolulu, Hawaii, and was raised in Kalihi by her mother Janice Ka'aina. She was a proud 1983 graduate of the Kamehameha Schools, Kapalama where she began her journey in hula and Hawaiian studies. In 1991, she joined the Na Hoku Hanohano award winning group, Kanilau, with whom she produced six albums and performed weekly at the Sheraton Waikiki Poolside show. In 1993, Noelani founded Halau Na Mamo O Ka'ala, and began to teach hula in Waianae, Oahu. Her Halau competed several times at the Merrie Monarch Festival, and performed every Sunday at the Ala Moana Center Stage for the past two decades. Her talents as a Kumu Hula would eventually open opportunities abroad as she expanded her Halau overseas in Japan. In addition to being a Kumu Hula, she also enjoyed a long tenure at the Bishop Museum Hawaiian Hall Hula Show as a cultural practitioner, and conducting hula lessons for visitors. In addition, she was an emcee and coordinator for the Japan Airlines Hula Ho'olauna Exhibition at the Ala Moana Center Stage for many years. Noelani lived a selfless life, often lending her time and talents to help others. Her passion to teach hula enabled her to affect the lives of many people, and she became a positive role model to so many individuals in her community. Her most cherished moments were those spent with her family and friends whom she loved dearly. Noelani is survived by her four children, Palani Chang, Keola Chang, Pohai Randazzo, and Kupono Chang, as well as her grandchildren, Lilinoe Randazzo, Kunewa Randazzo, and Kason Chang.
