In Hawaiian mythology, the story of ʻŌhiʻa Lehua begins with two young lovers. They were hopelessly in love when one day, the handsome ʻŌhiʻa caught the eye of Pele, the volcano goddess. In love with Lehua, he turned down Pele's advances.
Enraged, Pele stomped her feet, creating a fiery ring around the couple. ʻŌhiʻa lifted Lehua to protect her, raising her higher and higher as lava spewed. Forest spirits and the ʻapapane bird, who loved Lehua, came quickly to help the young couple.
Unable to save them, the forest spirits transformed ʻŌhiʻa. Turning his legs into wood and skin to bark. Hot winds blew sparks through Lehua's hair when suddenly she emerged as a fiery red flower nestled in the tree of her lover, never to be separated from him. Today, you can watch their story unfold with the ʻŌhiʻa tree and the blooming Lehua flower.
