Balladeer’s Blog’s look at Samoan myths has long been one of my biggest hits. Since the love keeps coming for this pantheon here’s an entry on a deity I didn’t cover before.
SI’U – The patron god of the Samoan village of Faleasi’u on the island of Upolu.
During the time of year roughly correspondent to what we call the month of May this deity figuratively “haunts” the village whose lord he is. Si’u is depicted with a skull for a head (the reason why is still disputed) and in honor of him skulls are prominent decorations in Faleasi’u each May.
