Pacific Islands - An ancestor-hero in New Britain. Twin brother of To-Karvuvu. A primordial god drew two figures in the earth and sprinkled them with his own blood, so producing To- Kabinana, the sun, and his brother To-Karvuvu, the moon. He produced women by climbing a tree and throwing down two coconuts which broke open to disclose two beautiful girls. He also carved a wooden fish which drove other fish ashore so that he could collect them without effort. Also referred to as To-Kabinana.
