by Micha F. Lindemans
The beautiful, amoral goddess of licentiousness and drunkenness in the mythology of the Chibcha. In some stories she pursued Nemterequeteba but he turned her into either an owl or the Moon. In other stories, however, her transformation is attributed to Bochica. She is occasionally identified with the moon-goddess Chiá and is, in these instances, the wife of Bochica.
