"There's magick in believing..."

Welcome to the

Realm of Pacifica

       The fifth Realm of the Domain, Pacifica is one of the three largest Realms in the Domain. Within its bounds, the Realm holds beauty and power within both land and and the great Ocean that gives it its name, as well as the great ruling trees of the Ring of Fire.

       Comprised of the American states of California and Hawaii, and the nations & territories of Eastern Oceania, Pacifica is dominated by the Pacific Ocean: which makes up most of it's total area

       Pacifica has had three Rulers in its history, but has not been ruled since 2009. Until it gains a new Ruler, and despite the sprawl of civilization, Nature holds guardianship and sway over the Realm.

Places of Interest, Power, and Enchantment

Hyperion

       The tallest tree in the world: taller even than the Statue of Liberty and Great Britain's Big Ben clock tower, Hyperion is amongst the youngest of the coast redwoods. At just 800 years, and standing on his own hill at over 379 feet, Hyperion is considered by many to be the king of kings of all trees (though others would holdthat title if you went by either size or age).


       He stands hidden somewhere with the rest of his court in the Redwoods National Forest, in the Emerald Triangle of Northern California: adjacent to the Cape Mendocino Triple Junction, where the Cascadian Subduction Zone, the Mendocino Fault, and the San Andreas Fault converge. Along with that interesting fact is the fact that the region he grows in is considered the most ideal place for certain types of agriculture: specifically the marijuana plant.


       Such a place of power points to the seat of a king. If so, then Hyperion is that king.

Mauna Kea

       One of the five volcanoes that make up the Big Island of Hawai'i, Mauna Kea is the tallest mountain on the island, in the region, and - from her base at the bottom of the ocean - in the world: surpassing even the height of Mount Everest herself. Atop of this, Mauna Kea - at over a million years old - is the most sacred of the five sacred volcanoes: held holy amongst native Hawai'ians, and other spiritual-minded people around the world.


       Seen as the Hawai'ian version of the Greek Mount Olympus, the mountain lies at the heart of traditional Hawai'ian life, and in the schism in Hawai'ian society. Seen as the best place for astronomers to study the stars, four high powered observatories - with a fifth in the works - have been constructed on her summit: considered a desecration to the holy place where only high-ranking ali'i and holy folk were allowed in ancient times. It continues to be a heated debate to this day.


        Perhaps the Mauna herself will settle it on her own.

Wi’áaşal , The Great Oak

        Known and protected by the Pechanga people, the Great Oak is recognized as the largest naturally grown indigenous coast live oak (Quercus agrifolia) in the Western United States. His trunk is over 20 feet in circumference, and the above-ground portion of the tree is nearly 100 feet tall. Wi’áaşal’s largest branches reach the ground, supporting the tree’s weight and creating a sheltering canopy for countless generations of people and animals. The Great Oak is over 1,000 years old, making him one of the oldest living oak trees in the Western United States.


       The Great Oak is located in an area once known as Great Oak Ranch. It was located just outside the borders of the reservation land granted to the Pechanga people in 1882. In 2001, the Pechanga Tribe purchased the Great Oak Ranch, Wi’áaşal, and the 1000 acres surrounding it. In April 2003, the Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians had the Great Oak Ranch property put into federal trust by President Bush. This property is now part of the Pechanga Reservation.


       To the Pechanga people, the land and the Great Oak that stands upon it carry meaning that transcends physical presence. The Great Oak has come to embody the identity and character of the Pechanga Band: strength, wisdom, longevity and determination.
