Volcano Goddess Pele is also closely associated with the indigenous Hawaiian Ohia Tree, which is the first form of life to grow directly out of the hardened black lava. Its beautiful red flowers, also known as Pele’s flower, are called Lehua, which means "Flower sacred to the Gods" in the Hawaiian language.
The Ohia Lehua Tree is said to grant visions of the future, offering inspirations to manifest personal transformation.
Pele’s Ohia Lehua Tree has been sacred to the Hawaiian people since ancient times and is often mentioned in legends, hula, songs, and chants.
Volcano Goddess Pele’s fiery passion continuously gives birth to the islands. Her power is a creative force: clearing the old, laying a foundation, creating and shaping new land.
Pele always brings the most fascinating news about the flaming spirit of Hawaii's Volcano Goddess hurling fiery ribbons of lava down the mountain slopes, giving birth to new rock formations and land.
Pele's gifts and blessings are the Maile Lei and a flame of Kilauea Volcano in a black lava bowl.
Maile is the lei of eternal love. The flame embodies the light of spirit, knowledge and life.
Pele's Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into the Haku (head lei) and Maile lei.The yellow Haku symbolizes a Hawaiian feather lei. In Hawaii the Hulu (feather) is believed to link to the divine. Maile is the lei of eternal love.
Tutu also sewed Pele's flame dress and crocheted the yellow panties for her beloved Mo'opuna Wahine (granddaughter).
