The Legend of Namaka and Pele

Namaka and Pele are Hawaiian Goddesses, as well as sisters that didn’t always get along.  The sea Goddess, Namaka was married to Aukele, who had an eye for the beautiful fire Goddess Pele.

While strolling on the beach one day , Namaka found the two embracing in a rather non-sister-in-law and brother–in-law fashion. Namaka lunged at Pele, but Pele managed to escape to the other side of the island, where she had hidden a boat. She rowed for many miles to the island of Kauai. As soon as her boat touched the beach, she began digging a fire pit, after all being a Volcano Goddess she needs fire in order to survive. However, Namaka sent a tsunami to quench the flames.

Pele moved to Oahu and dug a bigger fire , but Namaka spotted the smoke rising from Diamond Head betrayed Pele’s new address and again, Namaka sent a tsunami to douse the fires.
Namaka finally caught up with Pele on Maiu and the battle lasted for months. When the dust cleared, Namaka dove back into the sea leaving bones scattered all over the beach. To this day the masses of broken lava beneath Haleakala are called Naiwi O Pele (the bones of Pele).

Time passed, Namaka and Aukele made up. On one of their midnight strolls along the beach, they glanced to the big island of Hawaii and saw smoke and flames rising from Kilauea. Pele was back.
It isn’t easy to kill a fire goddess.

See Pele on the next post.
