The Gods and Spirits of Micronesia

LOA (2)

Micronesian Creator God

Creative-type Creator God and a bit of a drifter

In the beginning there was only Sea. Then appeared Loa (2) from we know not where.

He floated through the primordial soup adding little bits here and there by the power of his voice. These bits became reefs, islands, plants.

Finally he talked the birds into existence. A gull flew off into the air and tugged at the sky until it reached over the whole of the Earth. Finis.

At some point Loa (2) seems to have produced a being named Lejman.
