(Aztec Spirits)CIHUATETEO

Also known as CIUTEOTEO, CIUATEOTEO

Nasty and naughty Aztec spirits of the deceased.

In Aztec times, women who died during childbirth were honoured as fallen warriors with their physical remains said to strengthen soldiers in battle, and their souls spirited away to Tonatiuh-Ilhuicac - the gender seperated hotspot sun paradise.

The womenly souls would carry the sun on a Quetzal feather throne on his sun-set journey which is all very pleasant, but once darkness descended they would become the sinister Cihuateteo.

Hanging around at crossroads and stealing children was just the start of a nightime mission of hell-raising as they caused madness and sickness and seduced men into all kinds of sexual misbehavior at the orders of Ciucoatl.
