Excerpt from All About Sharks: A Complete Guide to the World’s Most Misunderstood Predator (Nov. 2017):
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.
