*In stories handed down for millennia, are myths and legends, who knows what is real and what is fiction.
They tell that the Goddess Pele looked upon her world of water with pleasure, but there was something missing, she needed subjects to honor her.
So she gave birth to a great planet/entity and called it Hale’akala.
She called Hale’akala forth to do her bidding to create a great upheaval, to bring the lands beneath the sea upward, to have a place for the subjects she would create.
A land to live on and honor her.
Haleakala did its work, from the sea rose the land of Fire & Ice, the paradise we call Pele’s Heaven, and we honor the Goddess in everything we do.
She gave us life and heaven in paradise on earth.*
