North American - An Iroquois maiden. The deity who made her pregnant thought she had been seduced by somebody else and threw her down from the sky. She was saved from drowning in the primordial ocean by Great Turtle and lived on land newly formed by the muskrat. Her daughter later became the mother of Oterongtongnia and Tawiskaron, in some accounts. At times, identified as Awenhai.
