Ready to Hang
Pele has pleaded with her sisters to bring her love, Lohi‘au, to her. Only Hi‘iaka is brave enough to attempt this feat. Pele gives Hi‘iaka her magic pau (skirt) to use as protection. Hi‘iaka is joined on her journey by two women. The women encounter many perils on their journey. Along the path they traveled, a giant Mo‘o, or lizard lay waiting with a vicious look. Hi‘iaka uses her pau to strike the Mo‘o. Some versions of this story have Hi‘iaka killing many of the Mo‘o.
