Zuni Creator God

Also known as Awanawilonais

Sun God and scummy Creator of Everything

He may be Her, She may be Them. It’s hard to tell as Awonawilona is quite invisible. But from this Sun Divinity came more of the same ilk to breed and create.

According to the ancient legends, he created everything out of a festering green sea. The scum solidified and broke into two scumbags, which became Apoyan Tachi, the Sky, and Awitelin Tsta, the Earth. Hence the expression ‘Scum of the Earth’.
