South American - A creator and jaguar-ancestor of the Juruna Indians. Son of Duca. He was born of a jaguar, Duca, and a woman and his eyes were in the back of his head. He could remove his skin and rejuvenate himself by taking a bath. He is said to have created the world, propping up the sky on a stick. He visited Uaica in dreams and told him how to make life better for the Juruna. The world will end when he removes the stick that holds up the heavens. Occasionally identified as Sinaa.
