‘Iolani is a Hawaiian word which means "heavenly hawk." ‘Io is a Hawaiian Hawk that is a highly regarded figure in Hawaiian legend and culture. Today, the ‘io live on the slopes of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa on the island of Hawai‘i. The ‘Iolani ‘Ohana logo depicts two ‘io. The parent‘io is depicted in black with wings spread to embrace and guides its fledgling shadowed in white. The parent-child-teacher relationship is represented by the three-layered wingspan. Working together to nurture this is our ‘Ohana.
