Voices of Fire

Restoring the literature of Pele and Hi‘iaka to its rightful place in Native culture and identity

Stories of the volcano goddess Pele and her youngest sister Hi‘iaka, patron of hula, are most familiar as a form of literary colonialism—first translated by missionary descendants and others, then co-opted by Hollywood and the tourist industry. Voices of Fire recovers the lost and often-suppressed political significance of this literature, restoring it to its primary place in Hawaiian culture.
