In Hawai’i, Laka is one of Pele’s sisters and is the guardian of the woodland in the story of Hi’iaka. She is said to be the deity of hula, fertility and the red lehua blossoms. Legend says that Laka first danced the hula in Kaana on Molokai and from there she traveled to each island teaching the dance to anyone who wanted to learn. Yellow, lei flowers, and dance symbolize Laka. She is also known as the goddess of the wild woods and plants. Rain connects Laka to her husband, Lono because she is affiliated with the wholesome elements of rain and light. Hawaiian chants seek not only love, but wealth because laka means “gentle, docile, attracted to.”
