"Na Ki'i Pohaku" translates to "The Petroglyphs".

These design shows a segment of a one of several chains of petroglyphs found near Puako on the Big Island. They are among the oldest of the Hawaiian petroglyphs, and the chains are dozens of figures long. The chains may symbolize ancestral connections. "Ke Kuamo'o" means "the backbone" and some believe that we obtain strength and stability through our ancestors much as we do through our backbone.

Some of the petroglyphs at Maha'ulepu are easily recognizeable images (e.g, rooster, paddler, poi pounder, above) but others are very cryptic. Interpretations of the latter range from dipictions of aumakua (family or personal gods) to adolescent graffiti.
