Lilinoe is among Hawaii’s snow goddesses. She is the younger sister of Poliahu and like her sister, a great rival of volcano goddess Pelé. The sisters are the antithesis of Pelé: spirits of snowy mountains (hence wet mountains) rather than fiery ones. Lilinoe is the spirit of dead and extinguished fires. Her name literally means “fine mist.” She is the spirit of mist and fog, which so often enshroud the mountains with which she is associated.
