Plants in Hawaiian Culture

Front Cover
University of Hawaii Press, 1993 - Nature - 345 pages
0 Reviews
The first people who settled the group of islands now known as Hawaii had neither metal nor ceramic clays for pottery. Thus, their dependence on plants, both wild and cultivated, was paramount. This book is concerned with the culture of the Hawaiians before the first-known contact with foreigners, and with the interrelation of the people and their plants.
