SOUTH AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Brazil, Peru and Chile...

HUALLALLO

South American Volcano God

Also known as HUALLALLO-CARHUINCHO, HUALLALLO-CARUINCHO

Volcanic Fire God

He used to eat children β€” presumably well-grilled ones. These were sacrificed to him whenever it was felt necessary.

He got his come-uppance β€” or rather, go-downance β€” when he took on PARIACACA in a big battle. Now he’s almost extinct.. but you can never tell with volcanoes, can you?
