The Chibcha goddess of indulgence, drunkenness, and licence. The Moon Goddess to the ancient Chibcha, who lived in what is now Columbia. Huitaca was depicted as an owl. Representing the spirit of joy and pleasure, she was constantly at odds with the male Bochica (or Nemquetcha), who stood for hard work, and a solemn approach to daily living.

He took vengance on her by hurling her into the sky, and turning her into the moon.
