HINENUITEPO
Also known as HINE-NUITEPO

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

Goddess of Death and Great Lady of the Night.

She used to be HINETITAMA, the happy Goddess of Light and Dawn. Until one day she discovered that her husband TANE-MAHUTA was also her father.

This revelation was too much for her to cope with, so she fled to the Underworld, changed her name and became rather more grim.
