Guama Hu-Rakan Responds to Human Irresponsibility

Tau My Relatives

In a recent post I pointed out the presence this Fall season, of the cemi Guama Hu-Rakan, servant of the Cosmic Matriarch when she manifests in her forceful wrathful manifestation, Gua-Ban-Ceh.

Guama Hu-Rakan is the spirit of spinning storms, hurricanes, tornados, waterspouts, and whirlwinds. Along with the cemi Guama Guatauba, the herald, spirit of thunder-lightning, and his partner the cemi Guama Coatriskie, spirit… Continue
