His name is Nyami Nyami, known to the Tonga people as the River God. He resided under a very huge rock called Kariwa and was married to the love of his life, she was also a goddess of the underworld. And for centuries, the Tonga people believed that Nyami Nyami and his wife had protected and provided for them in difficult times, to the extent that he fed them his own MEAT! when they were hungry. The Tonga people pledged their allegiance to him by performing ceremonial dances and sacrifices to appease him when needed.”
