The name of the creator god of the ancient Nilotes of South-Sudan. With a few of the Nilotic tribes (Shillul, Dinka and Nuer) he has kept his monotheistic characteristics and he is the supreme god and creator, present in all that exists. He controls the destinies of all the creatures on earth. Other Nilotic tribes (Acholi and Lango) use the term Jok only for a number of local or ancestral spirits.
