The Hawaiians named a small upcountry town on the island of Maui, Pukalani
(poo-cah-lah-nee) meaning window to heaven.
 
While the rest of the island fills with clouds, the sun breaks through just above the village, sending light and warmth onto the land.

The name puka symbolizes light, energy, and creation.
