What does the Hawaiian word "ehu" mean?

Answer

The Hawaiian word "ehu" references people with a reddish tinge to their hair. According to Hawaiian tradition, people with reddish hair are descendants from the family of the goddess Pele a ‘ehu.

Pele a ‘ehu is the volcano goddess to the Hawaiian people. Pele a ‘ehu herself is said to have flaming red hair. The relationship between Pele a ‘ehu and volcanoes establishes the reason why people with reddish hair are associated with this mythic being. Pele a ‘ehu is considered one of the two chief fire gods and goddesses in ancient Hawaiian tradition, the other being the fire god Tama. Tradition holds that Tama is the brother of Pele a ‘ehu.
