Our Polynesia race is courageous enough to launch themselves in wooden canoes, using their skills of wayfinding to crisscross the Pacific Ocean. Upon our ancestorʻs sailing canoes were stashed precious life-sustaining plants n the form of shoots, roots, cuttings and seeds which became vital throughout all of Polynesia for their uses as food, medicine, clothing, cordage and shelter. Three of these canoe plants common throughout Polynesia are captured on our 2017 Heritage of Aloha (HOA) Festival T-shirt: Kalo (taro); Lāʻī (ti leaf); and ʻUlu (breadfruit). We are grateful for our ancestral voyagers and all things that bind us together as a community of Polynesian hoa hānau (cousins)!
