‘Iwa‘iwa known as Maidenhair (Adiantum capillus-veneris)
ʻIwaʻiwa - The word ʻIwaʻiwa means; learned, intelligent and skillful. In hula Kuahu practice, ʻIwaʻiwa is not typically placed / offered on a “hula” Kuahu. On the Tiny Kuahu Series platform I saw this as an opportunity to highlight kinolau like the ʻIwaʻiwa to invoke the intension and essence of its name; to learned, intelligent and skillful.
