INCAN MYTHOLOGY

The Golden Gods of the Andes

MANCO-CAPAC

Incan Creator God

Creator God with a golden rod

Aided by his sister MAMA-OULLO, he poked the ground with his holy implement looking for somewhere suitable to start the human race going again after the mysterious worldly cataclysm (see PACARI). Not too rocky, not too soft, not too wet, not too dry. The place they came up with was Cuzco.

As well as giving rise to the entire Incan race, he’s also the God of Fire and PACHACAMAC’s brother.
