AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

KANU

African God

Creator God of the Baga people

He sits at the very top of the worship pile, with the departed spirits of fathers, grandfathers, great-grandfathers, great-great-grandfathers and great-great-great-great-grandfathers working their way up the ranks to join him. So KANU is obviously the greatest and grandest of them all.
