Maui was named for the demi-god Maui, who, according to legend, raised all the islands from the sea.
Maui is a volcanic doublet[?], built from two volcanoes that were originally separate but which now overlap. The older volcano, Mauna Kahalawai[?], has been so completely eroded that it is no longer considered a volcano except by geologists. It common parlance it is called the West Maui Mountains. The newer volcano, Haleakala[?], rises above 10,000 feet (3,050 m) and dominates south-eastern Maui. The last eruption on Maui occurred 200 years ago, and this lava flow can be viewed at La Perouse on the south shore.
