Mama Quca

Mama Quca, (mother sea) goddess of the ocean, Inca (pre-Columbian, South America), was originally a pre-Inca goddess of the coastal regions who retained her influence under Inca rule. She was invoked by all Indians earning their livelihood from the sea. When Christianized this deity was very likely syncertized by the Virgin Mary.

Also known as Mama Cocha. A.G.H.
