The creator god in Kuikuru mythology, it is said that at the beginning of creation that Kanassa could not see what he was doing, and having drawn a ray in the mud at the water's edge, stood on it and was stung by it. In rage he railed against the firefly, who he accused of not giving him any light. Then he remembered that the king vulture, Ugwvu-cuengo, was the master of fire, and he tricked the bird, seizing it by one leg and forcing it to bring down to him an ember from the sky. Although the frogs tried to extinguish the flame with water, a serpent helped Kanassa to carry it away safely, and so Kanassa became the bringer of fire.
