Chemiin, in the mythology of Central America, especially among the Caribbeans, is the great spirit who made heaven and earth. He is elevated above all temporal concerns. Evil deeds offend him as little as good deeds make him glad. Neglecting everything subordinate, he lives in the enjoyment of his own blessedness. The Caribbeans do not worship him by any cultus; they only think of him in their hearts, because he does not need their offerings., The same name is borne by the good spirits that conduct the women to heaven.
