With great sadness and a surge of happy memories, we learned last night of the passing of our dear friend and mentor, Mary Ann Sundown. Mary Ann has been a fixture at the Cama-i Festival for so many years. As a living legend she wowed the crowds even as she grew slower with age. Moving to the stage would put a spark in her step and crowds were in awe as, at age 92, she would dance and speak to those attending. She will be remembered fondly as a Master Artist, Dancer, and composer, but more importantly Mary Ann, will remembered by her family and those she held close as a sweet, kind lady, generous with time and affection. Rest well Mary Ann, until we meet again. Piu’ra
