The Gods of Brazil, Peru and Chile...

AMANA

South American Creator Goddess

Creator Goddess

She started off riding on the crest of a wave which was the Milky Way and is full of sea creatures. She rides on a turtle and has a mermaid tail.

AMANA created the Sun for a bit of warmth but did not realize it was going to be so hot that it burnt the moon. So she has to constantly sink the sun in the ocean to prevent it from scorching and drying up the Earth.

She had to create two sons, TAMUSI and TAMULA, to help in her never-ending battle against the heat. TAMUSI does the day shift, slicing off sun ray serpents and casting them into the sky where they splutter out as comets and shooting stars.

TAMULA does the night shift and keeps the sun from shining with covers of darkness.
