(Legendary Hawaiian Goddess)

       *** Healing and Renewal  ***    Blessing

Hi'iaka is the goddess of healing, resurrection and protection. According to Hawaiian legend, she is the famous Pele’s beloved younger sister, daughter of the great Earth-Mother Haumea. Sometimes known as Hi'iaka-i-ka-poli-o-Pele (Hi'iaka in the bosom of Pele), she appears first as an egg and is guarded between Pele's breasts until born.

The flowers of the 'ohi'a lehua, as well as certain ferns, are sacred to her. In one well-known story, Hi'iaka embarks on a dangerous mission out of her loving devotion to Pele, to retrieve  the young chief of Kauai Lohiau, Pele's lover .

Unfortunately, Hi'iaka falls in love with him. Twice in a jealous rage Pele kills Lohiau, but each time Hi'iaka brings him back to life with her special healing abilities. In the end, Pele finally allows the lovers' union with her blessings.
