OCEANIC MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Polynesia and the South Seas

SOIDO

Oceanic Fertility God

God who spreads seed

He married a mortal woman who could not keep up with him in the fertility stakes, and didn’t last the first night of the honeymoon. Soon after her burial her grave resembled a market garden with produce so fresh it had never been seen before. The very first season of yams, taros, bananas and sweet potatoes had arrived.

After this, SOIDO wandered about spilling seed into seeds all over until he found Pekai, another mortal lady, and they lived happily ever after running a large and very productive nursery.
