African Creator God

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.
