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.
