AFRICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of Africa

NDRIANANAHARY

African Creator God

Also known as NDRIANANHARY, NDRIAN

Creator God of Mud and Optimism

His name means ‘Life Comes From Me’ which is appropriate enough. NDRIANANAHARY created the world from hot arid mud, but wasn’t sure how habitable this was, so he sent his son ATAOKOLOINONA down for environmental checks. Unfortunately his son vanished without trace, so NDRIANANAHARY was forced to send mankind down and hope for the best.

Now humans who die are supposed to return to Heaven for new instructions, but they seem to prefer it down here and never return. Such stick-in-the-muds.

Meanwhile ATAOKOLOINONA is still missing...
