Abstract
With increasing interest in hula competitions in Hawaii, gathering of plant materials for adornment has begun to negatively impact some native forest ecosystems. A small survey explored conditions under which kumu hula (dance leaders) might consider alternatives to forest gathering. Growing plants in communal gardens or purchasing from commercial growers who might arise to service the need are suggested.
