The kukui, or candlenut tree, was probably introduced to Hawaii by early Polynesian settlers, because it has always been an essential part of Hawaiian society. Oil extracted from the kernels was used for lamps. Dyes for tapa cloth were obtained from the roots and green seed covering. Polished kukui nuts were sewn into leis. Because the tree’s products played an important part in the daily lives of the Hawaiians, the kukui nut tree has been designated the State Tree of Hawaii and the lei made of its flowers and leaves represent the Island of Molokai.
