Ubiquitous popular creator deity and first human

Tiki is a many-splendored entity with influence across many peoples of Polynesia, including Hawaiians, Tahitians and the Maori.

He is variously known as a god, a demi-god, and maybe even a semi-demi-god. In several places he is also regarded as the First Human. His name is also the generic word for ‘God’ and crops up absolutely everywhere. Plus you can easily access him via the power of Godsticks.

So we can highly recommend Tiki – if nothing else he gives real value for money.
