LEGENDS OF HAWAIIAN VOLCANOES - 20 Legends about Hawaii's Volcanoes
Herein are 20 legends of Hawaii’s volcanoes and the demigods which occupy them. Many of these legends are about Pele who according to Polynesian myth lives in Kilauea. The story of Pele’s arrival and occupation of Kilauea can be found in the very first story, “AI-LAAU, THE FOREST EATER.” Ai-laau lived in the volcano spewing forth his fire from the great crater when Pele came to the seashore far below. On seeing Pele, Ai-laau was fearful and fled leaving the volcano to her, where until this day she digs and continues to release plumes of fire and rivers of lava.

We invite you to download and read this very topical edition of Legends Of Hawaii’s Volcanoes, the activity of which was just as important to the ancient, original inhabitants of Hawaii as they were to the second generation of Americans who have arrived on the islands in relatively recent times.
Instead of wading through the scientific explanations for the recent volcanic activity, just maybe there is another, hitherto, unexplained reason for the eruptions, some of which also give an interesting perspective on Hawaiian history.
