Our Logo & Coat of Arms

The Allegory

Our coat of arms is named for the legendary Hawaiian navigator, Makali‘i.

The shield contains a star, whose seven points represent the seven stars of the Seven Sisters constellation, better known as Pleiades. In the Hawaiian universe, Pleiades is called Makali’i and it first rises around the time of year of the Makali’i moon (named for the constellation). In 2011, this occured on October 26. The appearance of Makali‘i also marks the beginning of Makahiki, a sacred period of the year, when certain practices, especially warfare, were forbidden, or kapu.

Our new coat of arms was inspired by the longstanding strapline of the Honors Program, He huaka‘i a‘o – A voyage of learning.
