NATIVE AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of North America...

ATAENTSIC

Native American Sky Goddess

Also known as ATAENSIC, ATAHENSIC

Iroquois Sky Goddess and mother of the Wind Breath Twins

She was married to Sky-chief and expecting, but he heard ugly rumors that the child might not be his and cast her out of heaven.

She would have fallen for ever but was caught by birds and came to rest on an island built on a turtle’s back by OTTER and MUSKRAT — then she gave birth to the Wind-Breath Twins HAHGWEHDAETGAH and HAHGWEHDIYU.

They grew up, and soon it was all mating, making, creating, gluing bits together, adding an extension, potting out, planting, make-overs...

It would seem that the world has still the decorators and developers in.
