LOWALANGI

Nias Creator God

Also known as LOWALANI

Creator Sky God

He lives in the sky and runs everything. Does that sound familiar?

As a creator of humans, he gives you a breath of life to start you off. Then he asks what you want to do on Earth. As you have only just been created and know nothing, this is a tough question. That probably explains why life seems so confusing.

His mother Ina-da Samadulo Höse had two sets of mixed twins. Lowalangi married the twin of his brother Lature Danö but she seems to be content to remain very much in the background. A sort of ‘her indoors’.
