The prayer chanter. On Tahiti Ro'o was a god with plenty of names: he was Ro'o-i-te-hiripoi, ‘Ro'o-in-distress; Ro'o-aninia, ‘Ro'o-in-dizziness’; Ro'o-tuiaroha, ‘Ro'o-in-faintness’; Ro'o-i-te-mohimohi, ‘Ro'o-in-dimness’; Ro'o-te-hamama, ‘Ro'o-in-gaping’; and many others. Invocations to Ro'o were made to cast out diseases, and he cured the sick and the injured by driving out evil spirits. The prayer-chanter god was the son of the sky god Atea.
