KALO, an art installation of 87 kalo plants created by Bernice Akamine, honors the The Hui Aloha ‘Āina—or signers of The Hui Aloha ‘Āina Anti-Annexation Petitions of 1897–1898—and all po‘e aloha ‘āina. KALO was created using pōhaku donated by community members from the islands of Hawai‘i, Maui, Moloka‘i, O‘ahu and Kaua‘i for the corm of the individual plants, along with copies of the pages of The Hui Aloha ‘Āina Anti-Annexation Petitions on the back and maps of the islands on the front of each plant’s leaves.

KALO was created with funding from a 2015 Native Arts and Cultures Foundation, Native Hawaiian Fellowship.
