What a difference a year makes - only 6 dancers from last years Kane Kahiko winners. Although I love watching the Wahines, I can't help but gaze at the Kane as they roll their hips and flex their muscles like warriors. Is that so wrong? Is that objectifying them? I miss iamq. He might have commented on skirts vs diapers.

Topping in case anyone on island or off island are interested in the festivities.

I prefer a paniolo on a pony to a kahiko kane in a loin cloth.

Is it my imagination, or does it seem that there's been a lot of renewed focus on more global Polynesian-style (Samoan, Tahitian, even Maori) chanting, singing, and even fire dancing in the past decade, and a bit less traditional Hawaii (even at the Merrie Monarch, which is supposed to be hula?)?

I find your question odd, considering the lush history of Hawaii and the Polynesian islands and how they are bound. It's akin to questioning an American child doing Irish step dancing.

How is "renewed focus" odd? There's certainly more "fire dancing" than 30 years ago; almost every hotel with a luau has it. The traditional Hawaiian hula is a specialized thing, compared to the various other specialties of other cultures.
"Hula is a uniquely Hawaiian dance accompanied by chant or song that preserves and perpetuates the stories, traditions and culture of Hawaii. Hawaiian legends tell stories of hula beginning on the islands of Molokai and Kauai."

So, I find your comparison to Irish step dancing odd.

I'm just topping this gratuitously as I loved the winner kane and was pleased that the Monarch judgement seems to be moving in a good direction.
