    Mami Wata is Isis' equivalent, but don't ever confuse the two of them. They are not the same.

    just wikipedia-ed Mami Wata

    I looked up Wikipedia on Mami Wata.
    She sounds very much like a version of Lillith according to caballistic accounts. What is your opinion on this

    Lilith was the real 1st wife of Adam. She left him because she didn't want to be subservient. She then became the mother of all demons, I believe.

    Maiden, Mother and Crone
    In Ifa, they are represented as Oshun - Maiden; Yemaya - Mother; Oya - Crone

    My opinion is, all these names are meaningless. Isis, mami wata, etc. all represent the same thing. It can be conceptualized as a trinity. Or as the Python.
