The Story of Kalo

Throughout Hawaii's history, kalo (taro) has been a foundation of Hawaiian culture. Carried by the first voyagers to Hawaii, kalo is a sacred plant in Hawaiian culture. Island families gathered around the umeke (poi bowl) to celebrate together. Today kalo continues to play an important role in island family life both for sustenance and what it represents in Hawaiian culture – growth and unity.

Living in an island state requires that we care for one another, respect each other and work together. Like the kalo roots that are intertwined in lo‘i kalo (taro patch), our lives are intertwined in our communities.

Kalo reminds us of Hawaii's deep cultural roots, and of American Savings Bank's commitment to the healthy growth of our community and this beautiful place we call home.
