Pulehunui is an ahupuaʻa in central Maui; it extends from the rim of the crater of Haleakala, the western portion reaches to the low land of the Island and grows broader up to the western boundary joining the lands of Waikapu. During pre-contact times, agricultural uses were basically wetland or dryland.
Pulehunui does not have regular streams or springs; it is in the area known as Kula. Kula was widely famous for its sweet-potato plantations; ʻuala was the staple of life here. Here was the Maui Airport. It was later abandoned and the old runway was used for drag races and time trials starting in May 1956.
