by Micha F. Lindemans
The creator of men in the myths of the Arawak people of Guyana, and the origin of all goodness. He worked together with Kulimina to populate the world. When he descended to Earth some time later he found that all the people he and Kulimina had created had become corrupt. Seeing that they could not be altered, he decreed that from that day forth they would die like snakes and vermin, rather than enjoy the immortality he had initially intended that they should have. Kururumany is the husband of Emisiwaddo and Wurekadd.
