THE AHUPUAʻA, FROM MAUKA TO MAKAʻI

"The boundaries of all but one moku on East Maui are demarcated by a single rock on top of Haleakalā, known as either “Pōhaku ‘Oki ‘Āina (rock that divides the land) and Pahala (flat). Eight of the nine traditional land divisions radiate from this rock on the northeastern edge of the crater: Kīpahulu, Hāna, Ko‘olau, Hāmākua Loa, Kula, Honua‘ula, Kahikinui and Kaupō, giving the impression of a he‘e (octopus) stretching its tentacles across East Maui."
