KANE

Oceanic Creator God

God of Procreation and the Sea

With KU and LONO, he’s part of the Hawaiian Creator trinity. Having made the world and created humans, he dwelt among them for a while but got bored and ascended to a heaven which he’d just made. KANE is associated with the Polynesian TANE, although we’re not sure why apart from a similarity in spelling. It must be a conspiracy by Oceanic rhyming poets.
