AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

JUOK

African Creator God

Also known as NYIKANG

Creator God

His story is rather complicated and involves Heaven and Earth being loaves of bread. There is also fish from the river Nile, grain, cattle, sickness and suffering. This all sounds a bit Biblical to be honest.

It all boils down to Nyikang, the local king, being propelled to divine status. Do you really need to know more?
