NOKOMIS
Also known as NOKOMOS

Mother Earth. She's the swinging grandmother.

It all started when she was a young and very beautiful Love Goddess. Full of high spirits, she liked to swing from heavenly heights on a vine until one day jealous rivals cut through it. She made a big splash when she plummeted into the primordial ocean. There was no way back.

So she floated with the wind and waves, which went out of their way to waft her into pregnancy. This caused her to give birth to just about everything and it all became a little crowded.

As she floated she became more bloated, supporting lots of life, and she grew larger and larger until one day she was as big and round as the Earth. Because that is exactly what she had become. The grandmother of all Earth Mothers.

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