Wavestillers

The Wavestillers are objects of worship or veneration among the Lulong and other indigenous people in the archipelago. The Wavestillers are sirenas and siyokoys, but venerated as actual sea deities. The worship of sirenas and siyokoys (called the wavestillers) consist of those who believe, especially fishermen and sailors, that these sea creatures protects them from harm.

The personification of the wavestillers is a serpent-like goddess called Hina. She is depicted as having reddish skin, three burning eyes, six arms, and the lower body of a great serpent. Hina is also regarded as a fertility goddess and ruler of the land of the dead. The Wavestillers believe that the souls of the dead reside in her womb.
