The Maiʻa, or banana, plant was one of the canoe plants brought to Hawaiʻi by its first inhabitants. The leaves can be used as an umbrella or to wrap food for steaming in an imu. The fruit of the Maiʻa, besides being food, was sometimes used in religious ceremonies. The plant is considered an herb and has no seeds; it depends on keiki, or young offshoots, to develop new plants.
