|Founded by||Makhnot HaOlim members|
The kibbutz was established in 1937 as a fishing village by a gar'in of HaMahanot HaOlim youth group members. It was named for its location in the Hula Valley. After the draining of the Hula swamps, the residents began working in agriculture. The documentary film Kibbutz traces the stages of grieving and disillusionment that followed Hulata's economic collapse and privatization.
