Evaki is the South American goddess of the Bakairi Indians, the goddess of night and day. She has in her possession a pot with a lid, which she keeps with her at all times. In the morning she pulls the lid off the pot to let the sun out (this is the day). At the end of the day, the sun returns to the pot and she closes the lid, so that the sun cannot be seen anymore (this is the night). Evaki would also steal the sleep from lizard's eyes (which is why their eyes seem to bulge so much). She would share the sleep with the other living things.
