Rawottonemd: See Ahone

"Rawottonemd" was recorded as a Powhatan name for "God" by English colonists in the early 1600's. Not much substantial information was ever recorded about the original Powhatan religion, but Powhatan oral history suggests that "Rawottonemd" and "Ahone" were both names for the same benevolent creator god-- either two different titles from the same language, or names from two different languages or dialects of the Powhatan Confederacy.
