Pele is a Polynesian Goddess of Fire and Volcanoes. One of Her stories says that She was exiled from Tahiti because of Her temper.
Sailing in a great canoe, She made Her way to Hawaii, where she used Her magical digging stick to create the volcanoes that rise up across the islands.
Pele is said to reside inside the Kilauea volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii, but all the volcanoes of Hawaii are included in Her domain.She is a goddess of fire, lightning, dance, wind, volcanoes and violence. Her poetic name means the woman who devours the land. She is both a creator and destroyer. She throws molten fountains into the air and governs the great flows of lava. With her power over the volcanoes, she created the Hawaiian Islands and to this day, she has been known to reveal herself throughout the beautiful islands she crafted herself.
Pele awakens our inner fire, and prompts us to express the truth and power of our own ever-evolving spirit.
