The olopua symbolizes the burning desire one has to affirm their identity as an oiwi Hawaii (native Hawaiian). Olopua is a hard and durable wood that is dense and heavy. It is also used as firewood and presents a hot flame even when green. The Hawaiian value associated with the olopua is ike pono (enduring understanding). We envision a community of learners that integrate their intellect and their intuition.
