SOUTH AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods of Brazil, Peru and Chile...

MANI(2)

South American Grain God

Well-loved Brazilian Food God.

He started out as a mortal who claimed he would take on celestial status upon his demise and come back as a maniac.

No, that can’t be right. Further research has revealed that he came back as Manioc, which is a staple food plant.

This still sounds rather strange. Do Brazilians eat staples?
