This program looks at crafts historically linked to the island of Hawaii. Flower Lei - A flower lei has become a symbol of welcome for visitors to Hawaii. Different flowers and colors represent each island: Niihau - white; Kauai - Purple; Oahu - Yellow; Maui - Pink; Molokai - Green; Lanai - Orange: Kahoolawe - Grey; Big Island of Hawaii - Red. Bark Cloth - Bark or Tapa cloth was originally created by Polynesian settlers. The men would cut branches from the paper mulberry tree; the women would peel away the outer bark with shells. The inner bark was soaked in water until soft, and then beaten with wooden mallets until it was as thin as cloth. Tapa Cloth Mat - Tapa making is the same as Bark cloth; so for this project we concentrate on the design and colors rather than the material. Pineapple - Over 1/3 of the world's pineapples are grown in Hawaii. This tropical fruit is their major agricultural product and a basis for their principal industry - food processing. In history the pineapple was a symbol for welcome. Coral Reef - Coral reefs are found in tropical oceans near the equator. A reef is a coral community made up of thousands of different organisms living together. It is living and grows very slowly - only about 1 inch per hundred years! Vacation Scrapbook - Hawaii is one of the favorite destinations for travelers from all over the world. This scrapbook page is for your photos whether you actually visit this beautiful place or just imagine it. 06/09DE/CC Closed-Captioned PIA 30 min.
