Kilauea volcano. Hawaiian Islands, United States

Kilauea Volcano. Hawaiian Islands, United States

In local belief the volcano is the home of the Hawaiʻian goddess of volcanoes, Pele. Legend says that eruptions take place whenever the goddess is angry. These concepts are included in tribal chants practiced by residents of the region.
The volcano has erupted frequently, although written records stretch back only to 1820. In an earlier episode around 1790, a Kīlauea eruption killed a party of warriors and their families. These soldiers were part of the army controlled by Keōua Kuahuʻula, the last chief on the island to resist Kamehameha I.
