(Chichimec Deity)AMIMITL

Patron deity of Cuitlahuac in Aztlan before the Mexicas were led to present day Mexico by Huitzilopochtli.

Amimitl was an aspect of Mixcoatl and being a dab hand with the ex-top Gods second most famous creation - the Atlatl dart - made him particularly popular with hunters and fishermen. It was ideal for taking down their favourite chow, water fowl, though Cuitlahuac Mallard just doesn't have the same ring to it as Peking Duck.

The codex Florentino contains an entire hymm in honour of Amimitl which seems to suggest he was the God of water game and the traps and nets used to catch them, and there's a very similar God in Uichilat - Opochtli, who was also an aspect of Mixcoatl. I think there has been a bit of God-rustling going on.
