Ayida-Wedo

Ayida Wedo is one of the revered Serpent-Deities of Rada Voodoo, who represent the sky powers; the rainbow is her symbol, and as wife of Damballah she shares his function as cosmic protector and giver of blessing.

Her surname, Wedo,  signifies her association (along with Damballah) with  the Whydah province of Dahomey.
