He Inoa No Hi‘iakaikapoliopele

Tuesday, December 11, 2018

Many of us are familiar with Hiʻiakaikapoliopele and her role as Pele’s favorite younger sister, but who are the other Hiʽiaka and what are their roles in the Pele ʻohana? Why is it important that Pele dances end with the line, “He Inoa No Hiʻiakaikapoliopele?” A Papakū Makawalu discussion with Kuʻulei Kanahele of the Edith Kanakaʻole Foundation on Hiʻiaka and her role in volcanism.
