MAYA MYTHOLOGY

The Mayan Gods of Mesoamerica...

KUKULCAN

Mayan Creator God

Also known as KULKUYLKAN, GUCUMATZ, KUCUMATZ

The original Supreme Feathered Serpent God

An aspect of ITZAMNA, he is the origin of the famous Aztec QUETZALCOATL who does a similar ‘Feathered Snake whose path is the waters’ routine. He is also involved with crafts and calendars. He came down to Earth and taught mankind the art of agriculture...

Basically, the Aztecs made an unauthorized clone of this supreme deity and called it QUETZALCOATL. This sort of thing was common in the millennia before patent offices and trademarks.
