Chaxiraxi is a goddess, known as the Sun Mother, in the religion of the aboriginal Guanche inhabitants of the Canary Islands. Chaxiraxi was one of the principal goddesses of the Guanche pantheon. She was associated with the star Canopus.
As natives of the Canary Islands are believed to have originally been Berbers, it is theorized that Chaxiraxi was adapted from the Punic-Berber goddess Tanit, and given a different name and set of attributes. She is also associated with the alleged appearance c. 1392, 1400 or 1401 of the Virgin of Candelaria on Güímar, on the island of Tenerife, carrying her infant, Chijoraji.
