Salt (pa'akai) is one of the most important cultural practices that still lives today. One day a young woman caught too much fish for her family to eat. She began to cry as she is saddened by the thought of taking more than she needed from the kai. Pele created a rainbow and told the young woman to follow it and it led her to the shore where she finds crystals. She rubs the fish with the crystals and it preserves the food for her ‘ohana to eat another day. This is said to be the first Hawaiian salt. It’s name pa’akai means to hold fast to the ocean.
