Pā'ū O Hi'iaka


The moʻolelo (story, tale, myth, legend…) of pā'ū o hi'iaka


ʻū o hiʻiaka in ‘ōlelo Hawai’I translates to "skirt of Hiʻiaka". The plant's name comes from the legend of Hiʻiaka, the younger sister of the fire goddess Pele, who as a baby fell asleep on the beach while waiting for Pele to return from surfing. The vine-like plant draped itself over Hiʻiaka like a skirt to protect her from the sun. 


Digital illustration hand drawn by JT Ojerio, the artist behind Aloha de Mele. Inspired by Hawaii's beauty, culture, and people, each art piece was created to make a statement, exude good vibes, and spread the aloha spirit. All prints are professionally printed in Honolulu, Hawai'i.
