Glowing lava from the world's largest volcano is a sight to behold but for some Native Hawaiians, Mauna Loa's eruption has deeper cultural significance. Some Hawaiians may be moved to chant to Pele, the deity of volcanoes and fire. Some may pray to ancestors or honor the moment with hula, or dance. Native Hawaiian cultural practitioners want lava gawkers to be mindful of those who are chanting, praying or gathering in ceremonies amid the eruption. Hawaiians have different relationships with the spirituality of lava. Some may pray in solitude. Some may gather in groups. There are also different relationships and connections to Pele, which some refer to as a god or goddess. Some call her "Tutu Pele," using the word for grandparent, because deities "are more than ancient than we are." Pele is an important figure in Hawaiian culture, representing all the phenomena related to volcanoes, the magma, steam, ash, acid rain. So far, the tourism authority hasn't received any complaints about people getting in the way of cultural practices.
