49 folks from Maui got together and worked non-stop for 12 hours a day for nearly a week to complete a 49 foot ti leaf lei made of 49 strands to represent the 49 people whose lives were claimed the horrific night of June 12, 2016.

“It represents joy, love, and healing and peace, that’s what we’re hoping it will do for everyone here,” said one of those chosen to present the lei.
