Nelemata was a legendary hero in Tiyanak mythology. She was portrayed as a great sorcerer who performed many heroic deeds but also many crimes. According to legend, Allamalatti sent Nelemata to steal the fire from Nihillowen, so that her people no longer would freeze and have to eat raw meat. Nelemata hid behind a cavern wall, and when Nihillowen was about to give the flame to the sun people, she darted in and brought it back Allamalatti. Nelemata taught the Tiyanak how to live another hundred years by taking shorter strides. She is also credited with inventing their writing system and how to make traps.
