Balladeer’s Blog continues its examination of the grand and exciting Hawaiian epic about the goddesses Pele and Hi’iaka.
The ship carrying Hi’iaka, Prince Lohiau and Wahine arrived at Iloli on the island of Molokai. The generally barren nature of the area prompted the trio to remain with the ship’s crew when they soon put off for Maui.
When the ship arrived at Maui our travelers took their leave of the crew and proceeded on foot across the island. This time around the journey was swift and unobstructed since Hi’iaka had eliminated many of the monsters and other forces of evil on Maui during the previous visit to the island. The goddess was still controlling her growing passion for Prince Lohiau, who was clearly smitten with her as well.
Hi’iaka – still furious at her sister Pele for the volcano and fire goddess’ destruction of Hi’iaka’s lehua forest and friend Hopoe, planned for her first coupling with Lohiau, Pele’s intended husband, to take place within Pele’s sight. Before too long the three travelers were on a ship leaving Maui for the Big Island of Hawaii.
Upon arriving at Hilo on the Big Island Hi’iaka and her companios were greeted by the fern goddess Pa’u’o’pala’e, who had escorted Hi’iaka on the first leg of her journey weeks earlier. Once the new foursome drew within sight of Pele’s home on Mount Kilauea Hi’iaka sent Pa’u’o’pala’e and Wahine on ahead so she could finish seducing Prince Lohiau and take him literally right under Pele’s nose. +++

This epic is such fun!
I want to see this as a movie. Even an animated one.
I agree, as long as it’s not from Disney.
Very nice breakdown on this epic!
