“Pele” – Pele is the Hawaiian goddess of fire, lightening, wind and volcanoes.  She is also called Ka wahine ʻai honua (“the earth-eating woman”) referring to the way rivers of lava flow and cover over the islands.  As a shape-shifting spirit, she can assume whatever appearance she wishes, but most often she is a beautiful woman with long flowing hair.  She is strong, powerful and cannot be turned from her goals.  Known for her fiery passions and creative powers, she is the spiritual force that transforms and rebuilds the landscapes of our lives.    Pele holds in her firebasket a piece of cooled lava, volcanic glass that has oozed up from her heart beneath the mountain.  It is sharp, strong and greatly desired by men in the form of obsidian to fashion tools and weapons.
