Diuátâ refers to the Kapampangan pre-Christian gods adopted from Buddhism and Hinduism. It comes from the Sanskrit word devata (देवता). They are different from the Núnû, or the much older indigenous Kapampangan gods to which Kapampangans trace their origins from. Although the diuátâ were originally foreign gods, they have become deeply interwoven into Kapampangan folklore, so much so that many of the diuátâ have become identified with the núnû, and that a number of núnû were treated as alter manifestations diuátâ.
