Hawaiian mythology

LONO

Hawaiian Fertility God

Delightful Hawaiian God of Fertility, Music and Food

Part of the Hawaiian creator quad-god collection along with KU, KANE and his twin brother KANALOA, he makes the crops grow and the rains bow.

A cheerful deity of peace, he hates war and much prefers a good sing-song. Why can’t all deities be like him?

According to legend, LONO slid down to Earth on the curve of a rainbow and hitched up with hula-dancing LAKA.

LONO loves a good feast and is particularly partial to sweet potato. If you need some rainfall, please give him a large portion. Prayers accompanied by a tuneful guitar always welcome too.
