Efé

Efé In African mythology (Pygmy), the first man who God created. After God created Efé, he wanted him to return to heaven so that he could hunt for Him. Efé served God well in heaven, but in time he wanted to return to earth. All of the Pygmies came out to greet him on his return, but because he had been away so long, no one was able to recognize him, not even his brother. When asked if God was still alive in the sky, Efé said that he was, and as presents he gave the people three spears he had used for hunting in heaven.
