Haʻikū is an unincorporated community in Maui County on the island of Maui in the state of Hawaii. For United States Census purposes, it is part of the Haiku-Pauwela, Hawaii census-designated place, which also includes Pauwela.[1]

It was named for the ancient Hawaiian land section of Haʻikū, which means "talk abruptly" or "sharp break" in the Hawaiian language.[2]
