Kanaloa - god ofrepparttar great ocean and all within

In Tahitian theology, Kanaloa wasrepparttar 127041 creator ofrepparttar 127042 universe and man. Byrepparttar 127043 timerepparttar 127044 Polynesians came to Hawaii he had been overthrown and was "brother" to Kane.

When Christianity came to Hawaii andrepparttar 127045 Hawaiians attempted to "fit" their beliefs intorepparttar 127046 "new" religion, Kanaloa was expelled from heaven and becamerepparttar 127047 devil.

The Hawaiians worshipped thousands of other demigods and lesser gods, such as Pele and her family. Pele ofrepparttar 127048 volcano was an earthbound goddess who could take on may transformations as a woman and who was bound by certain powers and limitations in each transformation.

Worship of each god in old Hawaii was a religion based on a system. Only a priest could interpretrepparttar 127049 actions ofrepparttar 127050 gods. From this grew a theology with prayers and ceremonies which were performed inrepparttar 127051 temples.
