  3. Isis an Egyptian Goddess of a thousand names.  The Great Mother.

  4. Devi the Hindus say, who gives birth to all force and form, who creates separation out of unity, who is the energy without which all would still be chaos.  All Goddesses are Devi, the one Goddess.

  5. Quan Yin She is a Boddhisattva (also spelled bodhisattva), a person who has earned the right to leave this world of suffering and enter nirvana, but has chosen instead to stay on this earth to help others reach enlightenment first.

  10. Sedna an Inuit Goddess, with a horrendous tale, that teaches me not to trust every handsome suitors word.

  16. Goga in Melanesia-Papua New Guinea we learn the story how humans got fire.

  17. Eingana the Mother as the creator, maker of all water, land, animals, and kangaroos, This huge snake-goddess still lives, they say, in the ocean, rising up occasionally to create yet more life.

  20. Diana mother of wild animals and forests, and a moon goddess.  She is praised for her strength, athletic grace, beauty and her hunting skills.

  21. Copper Women completes the circle of the sacred women.  The first nations of Vancouver Island retell the story of First mother, who was made of the earth on which we stand, in whose veins ran blood as salty as the sea, whose hair is as the grass, whose public hair is as the moss, whose bones and teeth are as the shells and whose children became scattered, and spread out to cover the earth.  We learn that we are all cousins, because we are all grandchildren of First Mother.
