KULIMINA

Arawak Creator Goddess

Creator Goddess

The long-suffering wife of Creator God Kururumany.

She created the first females after attempting to copy the human figures her husband had made. But important bits kept dropping off and hitherto unimportant bits expanded into a variety of rather pleasing shapes.

Kulimina was very happy with her efforts, but her husband was a male chauvinist deity and slouched off to make creepy-crawlies instead.
