Asase Yaa


Also known as Asase Efua, she is a major West African goddess who presides over fertility, truth, and the dead.  The Earth is her womb, and she is traditionally honored on Thursday.  It is on this day each week that all plowing is forbidden.  The annual blood sacrifice of a cockerel is made to her by farmers of the region to ensure a harvest of plenty.
