Kula in Maui County, Hawaii — Hawaiian Island Archipelago (Pacific Ocean)
Haleakala National Park
You are now in kua mauna, the land above the clouds, where people never dwelled for long. Ka po’e kahiko, the people of old, only came to this sacred place for specific reasons requiring training and understanding. At the foot of the mountain lies kahakai, the costal lands, inhabited and cultivated for centuries. Haleakala National Park preserves and helps perpetuate the cultural richness of both kua mauna, kahakai, and the diverse features in between. It is all here for you to explore.
Kipahulu: Costal District-Trails skirt dramatic coastline or follow pooling streams to Waimoku Falls at the head of a densely forested valley. At Kipahulu you can get a sense of how people lived in old village sites, cultural demonstrations, and a living taro farm are preserved and perpetuated.
