Mai Ke Ahi, Ka Wahine ʻO Pele
From Fire, the Woman Pele
Hawaiian mythology is filled with stories of love, pain, and creation. The stories, passed down through generations reveal to us the powerful connections among the gods, people, ghosts, and nature, illuminating some of Hawaiʻi's most famous and well-known legends. Most notable, Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes, traveled from Tahiti long ago and now resides on the Big Island of Hawaiʻi. Attendees will listen and enjoy as the adventures of Pele are shared through music, story and dance.
