AHA-NJOKU
Also known as AHO-NJOKU

Goddess of Yams

She's very sweet. As in sweet potato.

The staple diet of many peoples, yams are nutritious and delicious — and also a very interesting shape. Who can't resist a yam?

As Goddess of such an important food, AHA-NJOKU offers the complete yam service: yam growth, yam harvesting, insurance for yam farmers, yam jam, wham-a-yam, yummy yams...

Ahem. Sorry. Yams seem to have a strange mythological significance in African mythology. See NYANKOPON and RUWA.

Why not start your own plantation? You are never alone with a yam.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Aha-njoku graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Aha-njoku movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Aha-njoku statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Aha-njoku. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
