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 ti 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.
Anthuriums were brought to Hawaii in the late 1800s and are now a fairly large cash crop primarily on Hawaii Island near the volcano.
