In the mythology of the Arawak Indians of the Guianas, a creator god. Kururumany created man and all goodness, while Kulimina created woman. One day Kururumany came down to earth to view his creation but was displeased to see that mankind had become corrupt and wicked. As punishment he took back the gift of eternal life and gave it to the serpents, lizards, and other vermin. Though Kururumany was a creator god, another deity, Aluberi, was preeminent over him. Aluberi, however, took no interest in the affairs of man. Kururumany was married to Wurekaddo (she who works in the dark) and Emisiwaddo (she who bored through the earth, perhaps suggesting that she was the cushi-ant).
