In contemporary Hawaiian society, the term “haku” is associated with a lei worn on the head. However, traditionally, “haku” simply refers to the method of making a lei with a base material, such as a tī leaf, or tree bark, and braiding it while adding flowers, leaves, or ferns. This is a traditional Hawaiian style of lei making that was common in old Hawaii. The contemporary haku head lei is quite popular in the Islands for weddings, graduations, and any special occasion.
