Balladeer’s Blog’s recent look at The Gods of Fiji has been a hit! For another deity from Fiji here is Ravuravu, whom I also went ahead and added to the main article. For more than 20 other gods from Fiji see my blog post HERE
RAVURAVU – One of the evil deities defeated and driven from Skyland by the demigod Tuilakemba.
Ravuravu was the patron god of murderers and after his initial fall from Skyland he assumed human form and lurked in Navukeilagi, where he killed several men and women.
After being caught red-handed in the act of committing one of his murders the cowardly deity fled and from then on preyed upon Fijians less frequently. Ravuravu often sat upon large stones while awaiting victims to attack. Anyone sitting on a rock once sat upon by Ravuravu would turn whiter than an albino. That same change in skin color also afflicted anyone who walked in footprints left by the murder god.
The priests of Ravuravu often made a public show of eating rocks, no matter how much damage that activity did to their teeth.
