Waiora

by Micha F. Lindemans
The Polynesian goddess of health. Her name means "water of life". Bathing in her well, a sick person will soon be completely recovered, and be healthy for the rest of his life.

It is also a mythical lake that contains the water of life. It rejuvinates whoever drinks it or bathes in it. Unfortunately, the location of Waiora (Vai-Ola in central Polynesia) is unknown.
