NATIVE AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of North America...

HAYICANAKO

Native American Earth Goddess

Elderly Goddess who has the world on a stick

’The Old Woman Beneath Us’. She holds the pole supporting the Earth and gives it a shake now and then if she is not happy about something.

In case of earthquakes it is best to placate her by pouring some melting fat on the fire — it will drip down until it reaches her.

We are not sure about this but think she may hold the world like a big toffee apple on a stick.
