Kukui – The Tree of Light

Considered one of the “canoe plants” that arrived with Polynesian migration, with many uses including medicinal, food, dye and waterproofing for kapa, and fishing, but most revered for its role as both a literal and spiritual source of light. 

In recent tradition, it has come to symbolize enlightenment, knowledge, protection, guidance, peace, and learning. 

‘olelo no’eau: said to have been orignially cited by a Tahitian mother to her son, which poetically links the continuation of the ‘ohana and their enlightenment with the illumination shed by a chain of kukui seeds. “The seed was sown. It budded, it blossomed. It spread out and budded again and joined line on line, like the candlenut strung on one stem. ‘Tis lighted. It burns aglow and sheds its light o’er the land.
