Oro

In Polynesian mythology (Tahiti), Oro is a god of both war and peace. During peacetime he was called Oro-i-Te-Tea-Moe[?] ("Oro with the spear down"). He is a son of Tangaroa and Hina-Tu-A-Uta, and father of Hoa-Tapu[?], Toi-Mata[?], Ai-Tupuai[?] and Mahu-Fatu-Rau[?].

To the Rarotongans, Oro was the ancestor of their people.
