Iao Valley ~ Valley of Supreme Light

Paradise Text reference
 

 

Entrance to the Iao Valley

as seen from the site of ancient temple ruins

"All the valleys of West Maui radiate like wheelspokes from sacred Iao Valley, which is topped by Pu'u Kukui, Hill of Light, highest peak in the western mountain chain named Mauna Ka-hala-wai." - Inez MacPhee Ashdown

"In a cave located up Iao Valley there were petroglyphs of two dog figures, a bird headed man , and a canoe with sails...(one story) tells us that these ki'i (petroglyphs) were drawn by ancients in earliest times; and because the Egyptians also drew such pictures it would seem that the early visitors were 'from the country of the Nile.'" - Inez MacPhee Ashdown
