In Hawaiian mythology, Paliuli is the equivalent of the Garden of Eden, a legendary paradise and the home of Princess Laieikawai (Lā'i.e.-i-ka-wai). It was used for several place names, including a sugar mill owned by Henry Perrine Baldwin.

The Makawao Union Church was built on its foundation.[1]

Literally pali uli means "green cliff" in the Hawaiian language.[2]

In another legend, and Hinawelalani had three children; Kahanaiakeakua, Paliuli and Keaomelemele, they were raised separately. Paliuli was raised by Waka in Paliuli, Puna, Hawaiʻi island.
