The god of the sky and winds among the Nias of Indonesia. He is the creator of the human race and bestows upon them souls or breath. Of each person that is born he inquires what he wishes to be or to do on earth. He is the younger son of Ina-da Samadulo Höse, the mother of the gods who had two sets of mixed twins. Lowalangi married the twin of Latura, his elder brother, and with her became the ancestor of the human race.
