Nuru is a demi-goddess worshipped by Sunangan people, the original inhabitants of the island of Sunang, the Nau Islands. Her worship is strong among those who work with metal, such as craftmen and blacksmiths. Nuru's faithful are mostly concentrated on the Nau Islands. In Thalathanism, Nuru is a fire goddess who protects against fires and assists the sun goddess Matahari. Nuru was also the goddess of the forge, metalworking, and sacrifices. Sacrifices are made to Nuru to ensure that the other gods are listening because she is also a messenger. Nuru is often not depicted at all among her faithful, put represented by a bowl of fire. Followers believe that she sometimes she takes the form a fiery-coloured bird.
