The moon Goddess of the Mapuche people of Chile and Argentina, she controls the lakes and oceans, and is married to Antu, the sun god. She is depicted carrying the ceremonial drum, the Kultrum, that contains sagred and secret spiritual items and is used to call forth spirits of the ancestors. She reminds us to seek answers and knowledge from our ancestors and elders, to learn from them, and to continue to evolve and grow.
