A picture showing the legend of MAKE-MAKE 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!

Top God of the Rapanui people of Easter Island.

The all-powerful creator and benefactor, he was the only God they cared about, apart from a little AKU-AKU ancestor worship. The MOAI statues littering the island may once have been dedicated to him, but nothing is certain as it all went horribly wrong and now no-one remembers a thing.

There was a terrible civil war in which the MOAI were cast down, and a new cult sprang up which introduced TANGATA-MANU, the Bird-Man. MAKE-MAKE must have been pretty cross, as the fortunes of the Rapanui subsequently went from bad to worse.
