Zoa

African - A sage and ancestral-hero of the Songhay. He was said to have cut open a pregnant slave and saw the unborn child eating sheep's liver which had earlier been given to the mother. He grew angry when his son cried over the death of a bird which Zoa had killed with a single word and caused a huge fissure to appear in the earth. He jumped into the crack, which closed after him, and four trees grew on the site which became a shrine. Occasionally referred to as Zoa.
