  Gods A-C

A'akuluujjusi
A'akuluujjusi is the great creator mother among the Inuit people. A'akuluujjusi created the animals that the Inuit people eat such as Caribous and Walruses. The people became upset because these two new animals attacked them. Therefore, A'akuluujjusi swapped the walrus' antlers and the caribou's tusks. After that, the people still complained that the caribou was too fast to catch. A'akuluujjusi solved this by turning the caribou's belly-hair around so that the hairs will get caught in the wind, slowing the caribou down.

In ancient times, A'akuluujjusi helped the Inuit people to gain source of food, since he was the one who created the walruses and caribous. Without him, the people would not have survived. Through this event, our modern world now has walruses and caribous roaming around.

Abaangui
Abaangui is the God of Moon. In mythology, Abaangui was said to cut off his nose. When he threw it to the sky, it became the moon.

Through his action, Abaangui gave light to world when the sun is away, shining down on the people as the moon. Until today, he is still holding that responsibility.

Ayahuta-Achi
Ayahuta-Achi is also known as Twin War Gods. They were second-in-command to the Sun God, Awonawilona. Carving an effigy of him from a piece of wood which has been struck by lightning can grant you protection or victory in battle, as the myth goes. Then bore a hole in it and leave it outside somewhere.

Ayahuta-Achi provided protection to his people without the cost of senseless sacrifices and bloodshed. Only through worshiping. Today, we can all still practice this dying tradition to gain protection from this god.

Also commonly known as Achiyalatopa. Achiyalabopa is a giant bird monster who was considered to be a celestial deity. It has rainbow coloured wings, and its feathers were like knives. His feathers and sharp bill may be lethal as it can easily kill a human.

Nothing much is said about Achiyalabopa, but he certainly is a deity who was respected by the ancient people. Perhaps his feathers which was shaped as a knife gave ideas to man to invent sharp items such as swords and knifes.
