ATAENTSIC
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.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Ataentsic graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Ataentsic 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.

Visitors often email us asking about Ataentsic statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Ataentsic. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
