Mapping the Ahupua`a of Hawai`i
sustainability begins with the ahupua`a
, which are the ancient ecosystems and
traditional communities on each island.
TKI's exclusive wall posters help you find your ahupua`a and learn about the ahupua`a concept in Hawaiian culture...then and now.
These first modern maps of the ahupua`a identify the pie-shaped land divisions from the mountain to the sea on each major Hawaiian island. Based on over 12 years of in-depth research, these maps present the best available info on the ahupua`a of old using the latest GIS tools.
TKI's Art Poster Maps of the Ahupua`a
The Kauaian Institute, based on 2 decades of
research into these ancient boundary lines and
place names, the wall posters for each island are
printed in full-color on glossy paper, and
feature an exquisite Landsat image overlaid with
the ahupua`a boundaries plus extensive
supplemental geo-data, including summits,
waterfalls, streams, ditches, wetlands, reefs,
trust lands, modern towns and roads. Each poster
includes a brief overview of the ahupua`a concept,
and a version number (to
track TKI's ongoing research).
