Bananas can be found growing all over the Hawaiian Islands. The Polynesia settlers brought with them mai'a (banana) on their long voyage to Hawaii. It is known as a canoe plant- a crop essential for island living. Not only was mai'a used as sustenance, but also as an offering to ali'i (ruling chief), a highly regarded gift, and as medicine for various ailments.
