In Inca mythology, Mama Cora Ocllo (pronounced:ˈɒkjoʊ) was deified as a mother and fertility goddess. In one legend she was a daughter of Inti and Mama Quilla, and in another the daughter of Viracocha and Mama Cocha. She was the sister and wife of Manco Capac, and discovered Cuzco with him. She taught the Inca women the art of spinning thread.
In Quechua her name is sometimes written Mama Uqllu. Alternate transliterations include: Mama Ocllo, and Mama Ogllo. Unfortunately bad OCR has resulted in these spellings as well: Mama Oello, Mama Oella, Mama Oullo, and Mama Occlo.
