Degei the weather god (Fijian story)

Bula Vinaka bloggers!

Today I made an animation for one Fijian story that I know of. It’s about a story of a weather god named Degei. Dengei is a god that used to walk around freely. He was the creator of the Fijian Islands. Degei made the first humans in Fiji. He raised them and even learnt from them. Those children grew up and had their own children and so fourth. After someone passed away they would have to go through two caves then Degei would judge if you can go to paradise or not. Degei later on brought rain and wind and all the seasons. When degei shook he would create floods or earthquakes, when he would get mad or upset he would bring rain and wind. Now Degei is one of the highest gods in Fiji.
