Cultural Awareness Project
Transcript of Cultural Awareness Project
Lauhala weaving has been around since ancient times. It was passed down from generation to generation.
What tribes used it? Why?
The Native Hawaiians used Lauhala weaving for sails of the boats that carried the early inhabitants to and from the island.
Other uses for Makaloa
Makaloa is only used for one more thing: Clothing!
What level of Environmental organization does this fall under?
I think that this falls under a community because the abiotic and biotic things are interacting with each other.
Makaloa is another material in this weaving culture. It grows in coastal wetlands in Hawaii. It was used to make sleeping mats, but by the end of the 19th century, Hawaiians were no longer using Makaloa to weave.
Weaving is a cultural tradition in Hawaii. One of the most popular weaving traditions is Lauhala weaving. The leaves of the pandanus, or the hala tree, is what they use for this type of weaving. Weavers make hats, baskets, containers, and sails for canoes when they weave. This presentation will focus mainly on this type of weaving.
How long has Lauhana weaving been around?
The weavers in ancient times were mostly women. Weaving was very profitable, and women who were weavers were well off, and praised for their skill.
During the 1930's, weaving was an important way of life for many Big Island families. They made hats and coffee picking baskets to trade for food at plantation stores.
