    "Cocamama is the Incan Goddess of the Coca Plant.
    She is a daughter of the Earth Mother.
    She was originally a Goddess of Joy and Happiness,
    and she had many lovers. One of her lovers became
    jealous of the others and cut Cocamama in half.
    From her body, the first coca plants grew.
    Men were only allowed to chew the leaves after
    they had satisfied their women, in honor of Cocamama.
    Her name, which means “mother of the coca plant,”
    is also seen as Mamacoca or Cocomama."
