Ochum owns the rivers.  She is a jealous and protective mother who pampers her children a lot.  However, she is also strong-handed and pityless when her children disobey.  When a person looks for love and money she is the first they turn to and give offerings to.


See Yemaya


Ochum is received in the Ceremony of Ocha whether she is or isnīt the guardian angel since she is one of the main saints.  When she is the guardian angel she must be crowned.
