Roadways throughout Central Maui will soon be decorated with new signs–each one telling a piece of the area’s history.

“A lot of local people are embracing this project because they donʻt even know and they wanna know more,” said Vernon Kalanikau, the graphic designer of the Moku ‘o Wailuku Ahupua’a sign project.

Kalanikau says the project aims to inform residents and visitors about the Hawaiian land division system with signs that display the original Hawaiian names of the area.
