NATIVE HAWAIIAN DESIGN
“Do U Even Kuʻi?” is our call to action. In the past, Native Hawaiians consumed up to 4.5 million pounds of kalo (taro) every day mostly as poi. Poi is a vitamin-rich, easily digestible, probiotic starch. In a world filled with over processed foods, we are on a mission to bring poi back to the table!
To prepare poi, Hawaiians would steam the kalo, and hand-pound it using a pōhaku kuʻi ʻai (poi pounding rock). Hand pounding poi is nothing less of an art form, and our call to action is to revive this practice for our future generations. We need more poi pounders who can help feed our community this healthy, traditional diet.
At Maoli, we crafted this design for those who are interested in revitalizing the traditional practice of hand pounding kalo into poi.
Go ahead, ask your friends, let’s bring it back! I mean, “Do U Even Kuʻi?”
