Goddess Tahbi Yiri Image
TAHBI-YIRI is the Fante Goddess of the sea. She lives in a rock near Cape Coast in Ghana, just to the west of the rock where her husband, Tahbi, lives. Tahbi-yiri has the form of a mermaid and white skin with "a woolly head" (one nineteenth century writer's term for natural Black African hair), while her husband has a human form and black skin. Both of them cause sailors and swimmers near their rocks to drown. Tahbi-yiri's name means "Tahbi's wife."
