I hopped into a boat and left the shore far behind. Ahead suddenly loomed a Uros Island, in Lake Titicaca, on top of the world, Peru. When I got to the island the water drew me in and I immediately wanted to dive into these out of the ordinary waters. When I emerged into the water I felt purified, cleansed and peaceful. This gigantic lake on top of the world was clear, pristine and most sacred.
As I relaxed into the unique floating island ambiance feeling divine, I chewed on totora reed and played with the children. Potatoes and eggs were served for dinner, the potatoes cooked in the putu, which was a small oven created for cooking potatoes.
Axomama (deity #19 from the atheists’ god graveyard) is one of the daughters of Pachamama, the ancient Peruvian Earth mother. Her name literally means Potato mother. Potatoes were a staple food and main energy source for ancient Peruvians and still are for modern Andeans.
In Peruvian folklore, Kuka Mama ("mother coca") or Cocamama (Cocomama) is a goddess of health and happiness.The tale goes that she was accused of being promiscuous by a jealous lover.She was cut in half and her body planted like a seed which grew into the first coca plant.It is said that the leaves should only be chewed by men after they have satisfied a woman’s sexual needs.Other sources describe her as benevolent and beneficial Nature divinity.I couldn't find much more than that on this deity but I did find quite a bit on coca.
