They also chose the school colors, black and teal ("black for Kekaulike's thunder and teal for the blue sky above the green land"), and the nickname of Na Ali'i (The Royal Chiefs) in honor of Kekaulike, who ruled on Maui from 1700 - 1736.The school motto is Kulia I Ka Nu'u, which means to strive for the summit.
