Encyclopedia > Lotuko mythology

The Lotuko are an ethnic group from the Sudan.


The chief god is called Ajok; he is generally kind and benevolent, but can be angered. He once answered a woman's prayer for the resurrection of her son. Her husband, however, was angry and re-killed the child. Ajok was annoyed by his actions and swore to never resurrect any Lotuko again; thus, death is permanent.
