South American - Sun-god of the Mamaiuran Indians of Brazil. Twin brother of Iae. Having no light of his own at the beginning, Kuat and his brother Iae captured Urubutsin, king of the vultures, whose wings blocked out the light of the sky, and released him only after the gift of light had been handed over. They then took to the sky, Kuat becoming the sun, Iae the moon. Also commonly identified as Kuat.
