North American - The underworld of the Zuni. When the tribe were seeking a homeland they lost all their children in a lake which they had to cross. A brother and sister, who had been turned into supernatural beings after committing incest, made a road into the lake so that the parents could visit their children who declared themselves to be so happy at being in Itiwana under the lake that, henceforth, all the dead went there. Sometimes referred to as Itiwana.
