January 14, 2011: An evening of Chinese culture and dance for the Gabbards, Carol, Mike, Tulsi and Tulsi's friend Yamuni Brennan.
They all went to see the Shen Yun Performing Arts International Company, a performing company that is associated with Falun Gong. Falun Gong has been presenting these kind of Chinese cultural shows in Honolulu for awhile. The shows are actually presented by the Falun Dafa Association of Hawaii and New Dynasty Culture Center. Falun Dafa is the local Falun Gong group.
I think this performance was advertised here with little indication that it was being presented by the Falun Gong cult. Some of the shows clearly list the association.
You can read about Mike (Krishna Katha das) and Carol (Devahuti dasi) at the show here [www.theepochtimes.com
You can read about Honolulu City Councilwoman Tulsi Gabbard Tamayo and her friend Yamuni Brennan here [www.theepochtimes.com
The "Epoch Times" is a newspaper and website that is affiliated with the Falun Gong.
Yamuni Brennan is said to be a "costume designer."
I couldn't find out much about Yamuni Brennan, but she appears to be the wife of Harsha Brennan. Harsha Brennan, of New Zealand, is one of the Ninjai Gang, but the company that the Ninjai Gang works for is Ninjai Gang, LLC, which is a Hawaii business that is affiliated with Jagad Guru Chris Butler. (Mark Fergusson, of Health's Inc, which owns the Down to Earth Stores, and Sunil Khemaney, of www.wailana.com and Healthy's Inc are managers of Ninjai Gang, LLC)
Harsha is co-director of films that star Ms. Subhadra Bellord and Siddha Bellord. Satya Bellord, sister of Subhadra and Siddha, is also part of the Ninjai Gang.
