KAANG

A picture showing the legend of KAANG taken from our African mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more African Gods, African Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

Creator God of the Botswana Bushmen

He got totally fed up with the disobedience of mankind and went away in a huff. Now somewhat aloof, his only communication with Earth these days is via preying mantises and caterpillars. Praying to KAANG is therefore a rather specialized subject, We can only suggest you take a quick course of Spiritual Entomology.

Legends reveal that he created the moon out of an old shoe, although the point of that is anybody's guess.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Kaang graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Kaang movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Kaang statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Kaang. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
