Kalo (Taro) Pillow Cover


Kalo, also used in medicine and ceremonies, is a staple food of the         indigenous Hawaiian people. The root is pounded into poi, and edible leaves are called luʻau. The place where the stem meets the leaf is piko, the stem is ha, and small shoots, or keiki, surround the mother plant to make ʻohana. One of the original plants of Hawaiʻi, Kalo continues to be a favorite food today, and an important connection to Hawaiʻi’s past.
