"XMUCANE "(SHE WHO HAS BORN CHILDREN), ONE OF THE OLDEST OF THE MAYAN DEITIES, IS AN ANCIENT CORN GODDESS. THE MAYANS CALLED HER "GRANDMOTHER OF THE SUN".

ACCORDING TO THE MAYAN CREATION STORY, IT WAS "XMUCANE" AND HER HUSBAND, "XPIAYOC", WORKING TOGETHER AS THE GREAT ANCESTORS OF THE DAWN WHO REPRESENTED THE GENERATIVE AND PRODUCTIVE POWER OF NATURE. TOGETHER, THEY ARE THE DIVINE GRANDPARENTS OF THE MAYAN PEOPLE. THIS GODDESS OF TIME CREATED TIME'S CALCULATION AND AND THE CALENDAR; SHE COULD FORECAST THE DAYS AND THE SEASONS.

XMUCANE FUNCTIONS AS THE MOON BETWEEN THE PHASE WHEN IT IS FULL AND ITS DISAPPEARANCE. HER STORY DEMONSTRATES THE FEMININE DUTIES WHICH WERE SO

HIGHLY REGARDED BY MAYA...GRINDING CORN, COOKING AND OFFERING FOOD, CARING FOR OFFSPRING, HEALING, AND GIVING BIRTH. GRANDMOTHER "XMUCANE" WAS A SKILLED DIVINER.

"XMUCANE" APPEARS IN EARLIER PASSAGES AS THE PATRON DEITY OF MIDWIVES WHO HELPED TO BRING ABOUT THE BIRTH OF THE WORLD THROUGH DIVINATION
