The endemic ʻōhiʻa lehua tree and blossom are an integral part of our culture. It is mentioned throughout history moʻolelo and ʻoli. One moʻolelo tells a story of ‘Ōhi‘a, a handsome man who caught the attention of Pele, but was in love with a woman named Lehua. Enraged with jealousy, Pele turned ‘Ōhi‘a into a twisted tree. Crying to the gods for a way to be with her lover, Lehua was turned into a beautiful flower, forever to be an adornment on the twisted tree. It is said to never pick a lehua without permission, as it rains in sadness when she is picked from her ‘ōhi‘a.
