Hawaiʻi Heritage Plant Series
This series of portraits features some the most treasured endemic and indigenous plants of Hawaiʻi. Traditionally, plants were the raw material for everyday objects. Hawaiian people harvested wild plants and they also were master agriculturists, cultivating terraced gardens in a land with no running water. Everyone in the community understood the uses and properties of their local plants.
