North American - An omnipotent deity of the tribes of California. He formed the globe of earth in his hands and made it steady by inserting the black rock, Tosaut. The fish split open the rock, emptying its salt contents into the waters to make the seas. Nocuma then made the first man, Ejoni, and the first woman, Ae, from whom the tribes are descended. Sometimes identified as Nocuma, Nocoma, Nocoma, Tukma or Tukma.
