Palapalai Kapa Washi Tape
Palapalai is seen being used in many areas of the Hawaiian culture, but primarily in hula. This fern is sacred to the goddess of hula, Laka. This fern is made into a lei that many hula dancers will wear during a kahiko performance. When watching the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival, take a look at the adornments the dancers are wearing and see if you can find this fern!
