Description Pele, pronounced /pele/, (peh-leh, not pay-lay) is the goddess of fire, lightning, dance, volcanoes and violence. She is a daughter of Haumea and Kane Milohai, and her home is believed to be the fire pit Halema'uma'u at Klauea crater on Mauna Loa, earth's largest mountain; but her domain encompasses all volcanic activity on the Big Island of Hawai'i.There are several traditional legends associated with Pele in Hawaiian mythology.
Ruth Elayne Kongaika, South Jordan Rocky Mountains Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement Graduate with Bachelor's degree in 2-Dimensional Art. Lived in Hawaii, surrounded by incredible landscape and beautiful people. When I draw or paint, I feel energized. Nothing is more satisfying than sharing what is in my soul with others. I enjoy the challenge of capturing the beauty God has created in people and in the earth, and sharing it with others.
