This contribution is dealing with the question of faith in a supreme being of Polynesia. Believes in this God, called Io, Ihoiho or Kiho, appear in the written records from the end of the 19th century. The problem consists of the fact they appeared after the first contacts with Christianity and no doubt the informants were already influenced by the new faith. Nowadays the specialists incline more to the concept that the existence of a supreme deity cult is the result of the impact of Christian teaching.
