Sissy is the Executive Director at Maui Historical Society / Hale Hō'ikeʻike at the Bailey House. She is the daughter of renowned Historian and Kumu Hula John Keola Lake.
Sissy was born and raised in Maui and feels a deep commitment to ensuring the history and heritage of her home is shared and protected for generations to come. She began dancing hula when she was 5 years old and today, following in her fathers footsteps, she is now a kumu hula herself.
