Laka is the Hawaiian Goddess of the hula and also of vegetation. She is the daughter of Pele‘s sister Hi’iaka-i-kapua-‘ena’ena, and is married to Lono, God of fertility and peace. Hula dancers often make offerings to Laka before their dance. She is usually depicted wearing something yellow, with flowers in her hair and dancing.
