{{ safesubst:#invoke:Unsubst||$N=More footnotes |date=__DATE__ |$B= {{#invoke:Message box|ambox}} }} Tangaloa was an important family of gods in Tongan mythology. The first Tangaloa was the cousin of [[Hikule'o|Havea Hikule]] and Maui, or in some sources the brother or son or father of them. He was Tangaloa Eiki (T. lord), and was assigned by his father, Taufulifonua, the realm of the sky to rule.

Among his offspring the following are found: [[Tamapo'uli'alamafoa|Tangaloa Tamapo]], Tangaloa Eitumātupu, Tangaloa Atulongolongo, and Tangaloa Tufunga. But different sources disagree about the exact family relations between any Tangaloa. Tangaloa Tufunga (T. carpenter) was known as an adze maker. Tangaloa Eitumātupu is known in Sāmoa as Tagaloa Eitumatupua (T. ghost and riddle; an eitu or aitu is a second rank god of somewhat malevolent nature).
