In Hawaiian mythology, Kamohoalii, the shark god, is one of the most powerful and popular deities.

For protection and guidance, families that relied upon the water for a living often revered Kamohoalii, even making offerings when at sea to keep him happy.

Kamohoalii’s sister was Pele, the goddess of fire.
