First let us look at the top of the triangle where there are hieroglyphic characters. These hieroglyphics are the ancient hidden language spoken by our ancestors. Historians in the early 1800’s said that Hawaiian’s never had a written language. However, in the year 2300 B.C. our people were already literate, they were a literate people. Our chants and history speak about chosen priests who were record keepers. Please see this link for details of the symbols on the front & back of the Medallion of Havaiti Nui.
