In Aztec mythology, Opochtli was a god of hunting and fishing. Opochtli, also known as ‘the Left Handed One’ or ‘He Who Divides the Waters’, was the god of those who made their living in the lakes and marshes of the Valley of Mexico, particularly the southern part of the basin. As such, he is credited with the invention of items associated with fishing and hunting waterfowl, in particular the atlatl and harpoon.
