GENDENWITHA
Also known as GENDEWITHA

Iroquois Goddess of the Morning Star

She was a princess greatly fancied by SOSONDOWAH, a hunter who had been recruited by DAWN to serve as a guard in heaven. On his days off he flew down to visit GENDENWITHA in bluebird or blackbird form.

Showing off, he foolishly took her on a flight to Heaven. DAWN was furious and now GENDENWITHA is a gem set in the center of DAWN'S forehead, hanging forever out of his reach. Just call her the Morning Star.

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