Ea: Spirit of Sovereignty
The Hawaiian word Ea means sovereignty. Pele represents the unconditional dignity and freedom of the Hawaiian people. She also symbolizes the wild soul of all indigenous people of the earth. Every one of us comes from a lineage that was once indigenous and has been colonized. We all have ancestors who lived close to nature and remembered the sacred. Pele sees the domination culture and will have none of it. She is the flame of freedom that burns within us always. Ea! She calls us back home to our sense of real value and interconnectedness.
