Deluge is one of the most widespread mythycal motifs throughout the world although it may be lacking in some parts of the world. It may take the shape of a universal punishment of sinful peoples (just as in the Bible) and thus be a part of cosmogony or may be of a rather episodic or accidental nature. This paper discusses several instances of the motif of deluge in several parts of Polynesia.
