Tiki

Pacific Islands - The first man or a creator-god. The procreative power of Tane. Father of Ti'i-tapu and Tiki-ahua. In one version he was the first man, made from clay by Tane or fathered by Tane on Hine-ahu-one, the woman he made from sand. Alternatively he was the son of Rangi and Papa. In this version the first woman was Iowahine. Another version says that both Tiki and Hina-ahu-one were made from sand by Tane and they mated to produce the human race. Yet another version says that Tiki created a child in the sand which, when he returned later, had turned into a lovely woman, Hina. He married her and they produced children who populated the islands. Tiki created new islands as the population increased. Sometimes referred to as Tiki, Kumu-honua, Kumu-honua or Tiki.
