Pele Rises by Karen Arends


Pele is “She who shapes the Sacred Land” – creator and destroyer Volcano Goddess. Hawaiians know that to enjoy the fertile lands of paradise, there must first be destruction by Pele’s passionate and unpredictable temper. Many living in Kilauea’s shadow express reverence and thanks to Pele, even as lava destroys their home. Anyone travelling to her volcanic home standing at the edge of the active crater, is moved by the Spirit of this Goddess.
