AKKA
Also known as MAAN-EMO, MAA-EMOINEN, RAUNI, RAVDNA, ROONIKKA

Finnish Earth Mother Goddess

The consort of UKKO, she is an empowering female deity who provides feminine fertility, strength and sexuality. She is also the Goddess to call upon for earth magic and channeling.

As Goddess of the harvest, she can provide in abundance. She is also very kind to Rowan trees.

Her name means simply 'woman' or 'female' — and she is closely related to the Saami Mother Goddess MADDERAKKA.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Akka graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Akka 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 Akka statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Akka. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
