KAMAPUAA
Also known as KAMAPUA'A

A Hog of a Creator God

He must have started at the bottom of the sea as his mighty snout pushed up enough silt to form piles of land.

He settled on the land and wielded a mighty mace (his trotters weren't just for trotting) so it was best to stay on the right side of him. Also he could dig wells for fresh water.

For some peculiar reason, PELE the Volcano Goddess turned him on and he started snuffling after her. She thought he had the manners of a pig.

But when he started extinguishing her lovely volcanic fires with mud she was forced to think again. In other words: "I still think he's a pig but perhaps I should marry him before he puts me out of business."

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Kamapuaa graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Kamapuaa 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 Kamapuaa statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Kamapuaa. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
