Native American Deities – Selu

In Cherokee mythology, Selu was the First Woman and goddess of the corn. (Her name literally means “maize” or “corn” in the Cherokee language.) Selu was killed by her twin sons, who feared her power; but with her dying instructions she taught them to plant and farm corn, so that her spirit was resurrected with each harvest.
