"I am the Rainbow Serpent, the loa of fertility, rainbows, wind, water, fire, and snakes. Offer me white eggs, rice, or milk and I will share with you my secrets."

Spirit derives from Vodou mythology (Haiti and Caribbean Islands).

If you’ve seen a rainbow, then you’ve seen Ayida-Wedo (Aïda-Wedo), rainbow serpent, water snake spirit, and ancient root lwa. She is very rarely invoked without her beloved Damballah, her soul mate and other half. Damballah is envisioned as a great snake arching across the sky. Ayida- Wedo is his complement, the rainbow.

Ayida-Wedo protects Creation and her union with Damballah epitomizes the happy marriage.

There's 2 ways to pronounce her name: "ay-e-da we-doh" or "aid-a we-doh".

Ayida-Wedo is syncretized to Our Lady of Immaculate Conception, whose image is used to represent her.

Her daughter is Ayizan.
