The Tiv, who live in the central Benue valley of Nigeria, have a name for God, Aondo (sky), but are not much interested in him because they say that he is not much interested in them. God, in their view, created the earth and everything within it—including the forces of evil. Then he walked away—the Tiv do not ask where God went.

Tiv - Religion and Expressive Culture. Religious Beliefs. The Tiv recognize an otiose god called Aondo (Sky) who created the universe, but they do not postulate that he has any current interest in them. They acknowledge ancestral spirits and, sometimes, make offerings to them—but do not pray to them or regard them as either good or evil. Weor marriages and sexuality, worship of gods and idols, justice, sacrificial acts, cult practices, divination, and taboos are all contained in the Swem pot that functions as the Tiv law book. According to Downes () the actual and visible Tiv cosmos (tar) is seperated from the mystical and unseen part of it by means of water.
