Shrine to Pele
Mount Kilauea, Hawaii
Sisters will be sisters. These two just happen to cause eruptions and storms. The Goddess Pele is known to preside over volcanoes, while her sister Poli’ahu causes snow storms. When the two fight, Poli’ahu usually wins, causing Pele to erupt and Poli’ahu to send flakes to cool down the situation. On the big island you’ll find the most active volcano—Kilauea—acting  in mysterious ways. The volcano oozes lava along the ground rather than from the top, making the whole island appear to be glowing. Devotees of Pele leave bouquets, booze and berries here as offerings.
