Celebrating Asian Pacific American Month

Dr. Isabella Aiona Abbott "The First Lady of Limu"Dr. Isabella Aiona Abbott:  The First Native Hawai'an Woman to Earn a PhD in Botany Specializing in Hawai'ian Ethnobotany
The first Native Hawai’ian woman to earn a PhD in science, Isabella Aiona Abbott was one of the world’s foremost authorities on limu, or the more than 70 edible varieties of seaweed. Her work won Abbott the accolade “First Lady of Limu.” Also considered the foremost expert on central-Pacific algae, Abbott navigated an ocean of “firsts” for indigenous people through her 90 years (1919–2010).
