Encyclopedia > Kapo

Kapo can refer to several things:

  • In Polynesian mythology (specifically: Hawaii), Kapo is a goddess of fertility, sorcery and dark powers who can assume any shape she wills. She is the mother of Laka, although some versions have them as the same goddess. Her parents are Haumea and Kane Milohai. Kapo also had a detachable vagina, which she once used as a decoy to aid her sister Pele to flee the overzealous Kamapua'a.
  • Kapo also stands for Kameradenpolizei, and refers to individuals who have been recruited by an enemy to police their own people. The term was used to describe concentration camp prisoners who were appointed to supervise other prisoners. They received more privileges than normal prisoners and were often brutal to the other prisoners.
  • In Estonia KAPO is an acronym for Kaitsepolitseiamet.
  • Kapò is also the name of a 1959 film directed by Gillo Pontecorvo, about a young Jewish girl at a concentration camp. See http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0052961/
  • Olivier Kapo, frequently abbreviated to Kapo is a French football (soccer) striker, currently playing football for Juventus.
