TENGA is the Mossi Goddess of the earth. The Mossi people of West Africa believe that Tenga is not only responsible for the fertility of the land, but also for social order. She receives this authority from the dead who are buried in her womb. Tenga is most often worshipped near old trees or springs, which both have roots deep within the earth. When a transgression has been committed, especially one which has caused blood to be shed on the earth, she must be appeased by sacrifice or she will withhold fertility from the land. Tenga's name, which means "earth," is also seen as NAPAGHA TENGA.
