Akulikuli revives memories of lei and makes new ones

By Heidi Bornhorst

POSTED: 01:30 a.m. HST, Mar 18, 2013

~~<p>Akulikuli is a favorite old-time lei, a Hawaiian kama&shy;aina adaptation. It grows well only in certain higher elevations of the islands, such as Lanai City, Wai&shy;mea on Hawaii island and Upcountry Maui.</p>
<p>I was visiting Maui and gave a slide lecture to the Native Hawaiian Plant Society, one of the foremost promoters and perpetuators of native plants. Many lovely people offered me a stay at their homes and to see their gardens. I ended up in Kula with an old University of Hawaii horticulture buddy, Lisa Schattenberg Raymond; her husband, Kiope; and son, Kua Ola. She has a garden full of ono edibles, medicinal plants and wauke (paper mulberry, used for making kapa). Lisa is a premiere wauke artisan, dye-maker and kumu at University of Hawaii Maui College.</p>
