Poi calabash made by plaiting hala leaves? 1869.

[Found under: “LOCAL NEWS: Oahu.”]

Lau Hala Poi Umeke (Calabashes).—In Palolo Valley which is ever moistened by the patter of the Lililehua rain, there was held a small feast of pig there on this past Saturday by parents who regularly celebrate the birthdays of their child. At the party, there were also present visitors from town, and when the table of food was being prepared, umeke made out of woven lau hala were brought and placed at the front of the table. From these new type of calabashes did they eat heartily until full.

[Does anyone still make these? Has anyone seen examples of these??]
