"Damballah was a Vodoun god, in serpent form, who is credited with creating the world and the gods, and is therefore the oldest of the gods. The myth states: “Long ago, the serpent spirit Danbala created the world. He used his 7,000 coils to form the stars and the planets in the heavens and to shape the hills and valleys on earth. He used lightning bolts to forge metals and make the sacred rocks and stones. When he shed his skin he created all the waters on the earth. And when the sun showed through mist settling on the plants and trees a rainbow was born. Her name was Ayida Wedo. Danbala loved her and made her his wife. They are still together today, the serpent and the rainbow. Danbala and Ayida Wedo. His symbol is the snake, and his color is white.

Damballah is often called the most important god of the voodoo-religion in the Caribbean. He is the snake god, and is usually seen living in trees near water or springs. He is also the fertility god and the father of the voodoo divinities. In Haiti he is called “Bon Dieu” or “good god”. His wife is the rainbow goddess and together they bring the male and female qualities of life into tension and balance. Damballa is seen as innocent and benevolent. He has a quiet presence and his holy color is white. ... "
