The area that Haleakalā National Park now encompasses has been a destination for many people since Polynesian's first arrived in the Hawaiian Islands more than a thousand years ago. Whether spiritual practitioners, subsistence farmers, cattle ranchers, the National Park Service, the U.S. military, or tourists past and present, all have left the indelible mark of their cultural beliefs and practices here at Haleakalā National Park.
