NATIVE HAWAIIAN DESIGN
In Hawaiian culture, kalo (taro) is a primary food source that has been widely cultivated across the islands and across Polynesia. Kalo is not only critical to the Hawaiian food system, but also holds deep ancestral ties as the kuaʻana (older sibling) of all kanaka maoli (Native Hawaiians).
Hawaiians would plant young kalo in a loʻi (patch) next to a running stream. The loʻi would form intricate irrigation networks that would create a complex, aquaculture system. After nine months of cultivation, the kalo would be ready for harvesting and cooking.
To turn the kalo into poi, Native Hawaiians would steam the kalo and then hand-pound the kalo into poi. Poi is a well preservable food that is very easy to eat and digest even for our elders and new babies. As a pillar of a healthy Hawaiian diet, kuʻi ʻai (pounding kalo into food) was a daily activity.
Wear this design if you support the revitalization of indigenous practices, cultivation of kalo, love embarking on culinary kalo adventures, or simply think eating lūʻau, kalo or poi is ʻono.
