A creator deity who emerged from a rock in the middle of the sea with his sister and wife Munsumundok. They walked across the water until they arrived at the house of the god Bisagit. He gave the pair earth and after it was placed, Kinharingan created the Dusuns. In an alternative story, the pair was dirty and when they washed themselves the dirt from their bodies became land. They also created the sun, the moon, and the constellations.
