This was the first of several Mele Mural projects completed with the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo. The images in this mural are filled with kaona (multiple meanings in Hawaiian). Konikoni ana i ka iwi Hilo means “The energy/passion of the bones of Hilo.” The university campus is adjacent to the Mokaulele Forest, renowned for its scarlet ‘ōhi‘a-lehua and is now an endangered species. The forest was filled with the equally bright ‘apapane and ‘i‘iwi birds, which are also rendered into the mural.
