Kiribati (Gilbertese) Tree Goddess
Also known as Titua'abine, Tituaabine, Tituabine
A Lighting Goddess who turned herself into Heavenly Compost
The sister of Auriaria, the Top God, Nei Tituaabine was a lovely Goddess with red skin and blue eyes that sparkled like lightning.
You don’t get many female lightning deities; lightning is usually reserved for butch male Gods with lots of muscles.
Although she was his sister, Auriaria was unable to resist her charms – her lightning was a work of art and she had beautiful bolts.
But however much they tried, they were unable to conceive children. Then, one sad day, she died. But lo! From her body sprang three little saplings. These miraculous plants grew and blossomed into the first coconut, almond and pandarus trees.
This was a comfort to Auriaria and the coconut and almond harvests were a great gift to mortals. Nei Tituaabine became a Goddess of Trees. Meanwhile we think she must have ascended to the skies to continue her lightning artistry.
