MAORI

Makoni Creator God

Extremely patient Creator God

Despite his name he has no connection to Oceania. Little is known about him (at least by us). But in the beginning he had a lot of trouble with moaning mankind — in the form of Mwuetsi, the first human.

Maori may well have been so ticked off with events that he changed his name to Mwari and headed into the sky never to be seen again.
