Evaki is the goddess of sleep of the Bakairi Indians of South America. She is the ruler of night and day. She stole sleep from the eyes of the lizards and shared it to all the living creatures. Evaki teaches us the power of dreams and their meaning. She holds in Her possession of pot with a lid. In the morning She removes the lid from the pot and lets the sun out. At the end of the day, when the sun returns to the pot She closes the lid so that the sun cannot be seen anymore.
