Calling Kiawahine, the Lizard Goddess, back to Her
home island of Maui, Hawaii
I have travelled to the Hawaiian island of Maui many times over the last 12 years and led Goddess Retreats there in 2010 and 2011, with Lydia Ruyle, the artist scholar, and Apela Colorado, an Indigenous Cultural Practitioner. These retreats were focused on remembering and bringing Kiawahine, the fresh water Lizard Goddess back to Her rightful home in the Royal Ponds at Lahaina. The following articles and images about the Kiawahine have been compiled by Lydia Ruyle giving a flavour of this essential journey of reclaiming this Hawaiian Goddess and Her sacred home, through the work of many people over many years.
