A term for the paraphysical force that is believed by inhabitants of Oceania and the Hawaiian Islands to exist in the universe. Tribal witch doctors are chosen based on their ability to tap into mana from heaven, which they may demonstrate by exhibiting psychokinetic skills (e.g., levitating objects or making them appear or disappear) or by displaying a second sight or clairvoyance (e.g., which tells them when and where food animals are plentiful, or how to treat a person’s illness).
