Oceania

A Micronesian creator deity. Tpereakl and his consort, Latmikaik, who arose from a wave-beaten rock, ruled the universe together. While Tpereakl lived in the sky, Latmikaik took up residence at the bottom of the sea, where she gave birth to two sons as well as shoals of fish. The earth appears to have been built by the fishes, just as the matings of certain gods and fishes produced mankind.
