ǃXu is arguably the main god of the Bushmen of southern Africa. He is considered a benevolent and omnipotent supreme being. He is also the sky god to whom the souls of the dead go. He is said to "Summon the magicians to their profession, and gives them supernatural powers." The Bushmen add that he provides the rain and is invoked in illness, before hunting and before traveling.
