Yemanja is the Yoruban sea Goddess, the mother of all the spirits (or Deities). She is also called Yemaya; Yemanja is the Brazilian Portuguese spelling, where She is honored in Candomblé. In Her homeland of western Africa She is considered a Goddess of rivers, especially the Ogun River, though in Brazil She is mainly an Ocean Goddess. Her name ultimately means 'She Whose Children Are the Fishes’.
