 Umay is the goddess of fertility and virginity in Turkic mythology and Tengriism. She resembles earth-mother goddesses found in various other world religions. Umay is a protector of women and children. The oldest evidence is seen in the Orkhon monuments. From these it is understood that Umay was accepted as a mother and a guide. In the view of the Kyrgyz people, Umay not only protects children, but also Turkic communities around the world. At the same time Umay helps people to obtain more food and goods and gives them luck.
