Pacific Islands - A semi-divine ancestor of the Gilbert Islanders. Son of Bakoa and Nai Nguiriki. Father of Te-ariki-n-tarawa. Bakao's first offspring were fishes, then came Taburimai, a human, and Teanoi, a shark. The fishes intended to kill 'the fish with legs' so Teanoi carried him on his back to the safety of Samoa. At times, identified as Taburimai.
