Hongak

September 5th, 2008 by sabrina

Hongak is the Seneca Goddess of geese, in particular the Canada goose. When her husband Hagowanen, the hunter God, was captured by the evil spider spirit Djieien, Hongak gave their son Othegwenhda an amulet made of flint which contained her spirit. She told him to place it between his belt and his body, and while it was there, he would be able to change into any form that he wished. With it to aid him, he was able to kill Djieien and rescue his father.
