‘Mamiwata’ is an African name for a spirit believed to be embodied by the manatee. She’s a female and caprious spirit. When waters are high here during the rainy season they say Mamiwata is hungry (which is cool, because manatees enter flooded forests to feed during the rainy season). I’m hearing some stories here and will relay more soon….
