Indonesian Mythology

ADITINGGI

Siau Volcano God

Also known as Sang Aditinggi

Volcanic God

The God of Mount Awu (Gunung Awu) volcano on Great Sangihe Island of Sulawesi if you really need to go there.

He must have a fearsomely bad temper — Awu is the largest and most dangerous volcano in Indonesia.

Despite the prominence of this volcano, our data dwarves have had a little difficulty tracking down his details. We have it on slightly dubious authority that locals used to throw a child into the volcano crater once per year to prevent eruptions. That must have been a very effective warning for children. “Now Johnny, make sure you behave or mommy will throw you into the volcano.”

In the absence of more info, all we can advise to prospective volcano-visitors is that you tread softly and carry a large box of god-friendly gifts.
