Polynesian Mythology


Rapa Nui Supreme God

Also known as MAKE-MAKE

Top God of the Rapanui people of Easter Island

The all-powerful creator and benefactor, he was the only God they cared about, apart from a little AKU-AKU ancestor worship. The MOAI statues littering the island may once have been dedicated to him, but nothing is certain as it all went horribly wrong and now no-one remembers a thing.

There was a terrible civil war in which the MOAI were cast down, and a new cult sprang up which introduced TANGATA-MANU, the Bird-Man. MAKEMAKE must have been pretty cross, as the fortunes of the Rapanui subsequently went from bad to worse.
