HURACAN
Also known as HARAKAN, HURRICAN, HURUKAN

A picture showing the legend of HURACAN taken from our Mayan mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Mayan Gods, Mayan Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

God of Gale Force Winds. Yes, you've guessed it — [HURACAN] is the God who put hurricanes on the map.

It's not many Mayan Gods who can claim their name is in common usage, but as a high-ranking Storm God and best buddy of HUNAB-KU he's obviously very important.

Apart from stormy weather he also does a lot of Life-Creating. We understand he is also known as the One-Legged God, but no-one appears to know why. Perhaps we shouldn't have mentioned it.

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