RELATED INFORMATION

The tī plant was brought to Hawaii prior to 1778 by the early Polynesians from Tangaroa, Tane, Tī, and Rongo. Hawaiian Ki was considered sacred to the Hawaiian god, Lono, and to the goddess of the hula, Laka. It symbolized high rank and divine power. The leaves were used by the kahuna priests in ancient rituals as protection from evil spirits.

Brought to Hawaii in the early 1800s, the rose has been an integral part of lei making in Hawaii ever since, used frequently as accents in both traditional haku leis as well as more contemporary orchid leis. The red lokelani or cottage rose is the Island of Maui’s official flower – the only non-native plant to be recognized as the official flower of any of the Hawaiian Islands.
