Samoan Creator God
Also known as Lo'o, Tagaloa-Lagi, Tangaloa
A Creator God who made humans from grubs
We get in a bit of a tangle with Oceanic Gods, particularly when it comes to sorting out the Tagaros from the Tangaroas. But Tagaloa is definitely the one with the grubs.
After making himself a wife out of stone, he planted a special vine. The grubs that rooted around in the roots were re-routed to Earth to become mankind. So there you are.
Tagaloa also sent a messenger bird, Tuli, to Earth to provide shelter.
