THE STORY OF PELE; HER DEEDS, HER POWER; AND HER NATURE: 

It is said that Kūwahailo was her father, and Haumea was her mother. Her father was a man-eater, and her mother was a cliff. From them came Nāmakaokahaʻi (f.) and Pele (f.)

Here are the Brothers of Pele:

Kānehekili, (He rules thunder,)

Kānehoalani, (He rules knowledge,)

Kānepōhākaʻa,

Kānepōhaku, (He rules stone,)

Kānemilohaʻi, (He rules sickness,)

Kānehulihonua, (He rules earthquakes and tremors,)

Kānehulikoʻa. (He destroys the coral reefs of the ocean,)

Punaʻaikoʻa,

Kamohoaliʻi, (He has power,)

Kauilanuimākēhāikalani, (He rules lightning,)

Lonomakua, (It is he who lights the fire.)

Here are the younger sisters of Pele:

Hiʻiakaikapuaʻenaʻena,

Hiʻiakaikapuaaneane,

Hiʻiakanoholae,

Hiʻiakaikapoliopele.
