Namaka Hawaiian bead
In Hawaiian mythology, Namaka is a powerful and prominent sea goddess. She is the daughter of Haumea, the goddess of fertility and childbirth, and Kane Milohai, the god of light and the sky. Namaka is known as the goddess of the sea and is believed to be responsible for the waves and the ocean’s power.
In the Hawaiian creation story, Namaka was born from the union of Haumea and Kane Milohai. She was said to have been born in the deep sea, in a place called “Kahiki,” and was raised by her mother and other sea gods and goddesses. It is said that she grew up to be a strong and fierce goddess, who could control the sea and its inhabitants.
Namaka is often depicted as a beautiful woman, with long hair and a necklace made of shells. She is also associated with sharks and sea turtles, who are considered her sacred animals. It is believed that she can take the form of a shark or a sea turtle, and that these animals are her messengers.
In Hawaiian culture, Namaka was highly respected and honored by the people. Fishermen would pray to her for protection and safe passage during their fishing trips. They would also offer her gifts, such as fish and shells, to show their respect and gratitude. Many Hawaiian families would keep small statues of Namaka in their homes, and offer her flowers and other offerings on a daily basis.
Namaka was also associated with the healing arts. It is said that she had the power to heal people who were suffering from illnesses related to the sea, such as skin diseases and infections. Hawaiian healers would often invoke her name during their healing rituals, and ask for her help in curing their patients.
Today, the legacy of Namaka lives on, she continues to be an important figure in Hawaiian culture and mythology. Her powerful and enduring spirit is still invoked by many people, who seek protection and blessings from the sea goddess. Namaka’s enduring legacy is not only a reminder of the importance of the sea to the Hawaiian people, but also of the powerful role that mythology can play in shaping a culture and in providing a connection to the natural world.
