Nyanka

[n’YAHNK-uh]

Doraddi pantheon — mother of life and childbirth

During the Green Age, Mother Nyanka walked across the world and blessed the land. When the Bad Times came, the land dried up, and the people saw the true meaning of her blessing. Every place where Mother Nyanka had slept during her journeys became a green oasis. She also used her generative powers to teach people how to make children.

Her image is often carved into the living wood of a nyanka tree, consisting for the most part of bulging breasts and belly, a serene face, and distinctive pregnancy earrings.
