YAMBE-AKKA is the Sami Goddess of the underworld. She is represented as an old crone, and the trembling of her hands is what causes earthquakes. Yambe-akka shepherds the souls of the dead to the underworld. She is featured in Philip Pullman's "His Dark Materials" series as a Goddess of death of witches, who brings joy along with death. Yambe-akka's name, which means "old woman of the dead," is also seen as YABME-AKKA, JABME-AKKA, JAMEAKKA, JABMEKS, JABMI-AKKO, or JAMI-AJMO-OLLMAJ.
