Ahupua`a Honolulu Sign

A L O H A !
Ahupua`a are
 the traditional ancient 
divisions of 
our Hawaiian isles.
This sign represents the 
pile of stones marking the 
boundary. Sacrifice of pig
(Pua`a) were placed
atop the pile.

Each Ahupua`a district
was like a slice of pie:
Thin inland atop the mountain,
broadening out like a pie slice
to encompass a stretch of coast.

The people of each Ahupua`a
enjoyed the bounty of
Mountain, Plains, and the Beach
with it's fish and sea vegetables.
