Sacred Maunakea, Window to the Stars

Mauna Kea

Measured from its base at the ocean floor, Maunakea is the tallest mountain in the world. The name means “white mountain,” and “mountain of Wakea.” Wakea is the creator god, the ancestor of all people. It is the realm of snow goddess Poliahu, who to this day does battle with volcano goddess Pele. The mountain summit is also home to 13 of the world’s most advanced astronomical observatories on the planet. It is a sacred place to Hawaiians and another key to the universe for scientists.
