WAILUKU, Maui, Hawaii (CNN) - Chelsea Clinton greeted more than a hundred people Sunday afternoon in Wailuku, a city on the Hawaiian island of Maui. From the moment she arrived at the rally, attendees welcomed Clinton with leis and hugs.

A local cheerleading squad performed a routine they choreographed just for Clinton's visit to the island. After a group of local girls danced a hula, Clinton was invited to try the local tradition. After some encouragement from the crowd, a reluctant Clinton went to the very back of the stage and joined in, along with other local Democratic leaders. She was still wearing her dark high heels.

Later, the Stanford graduate thanked the crowd for its support of her mother's presidential campaign and encouraged them to particpate in Tuesday's caucus. She vowed to practice her hula skills before returning to Hawaii.

After the rally, the 28-year-old spoke with attendees and posed for pictures.
