Merger between Sua (Muyscas) and Bochica[edit]

On the Sua page, the deity is described as "also known as Bachica". They both are solar gods, parts of the Muiscan pantheon. Cheers, ChoumX (talk) 20:15, 13 November 2013 (UTC).

Agreed with the merge; the article title is wrong anyway, using an old spelling "Muyscas" in Spanish plural where it would be "Muisca" (pl) in English. Tisquesusa (talk) 21:26, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

The sources that identify Sua with Bochica all seem fringe, eg[1] by an author who thinks Peru was an Indian colongy. Muisca religion and mythology What I do find is sources stating that Sua is the word for sun or "day" as opposed to night.is a University of Chicago publication. Sadly I don't read Spanish or might be able to find better sources. Doug Weller talk 09:32, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for that, Doug Weller, I will try to find more sources and see what they say. Sam Sailor Talk! 10:36, 21 April 2016 (UTC)
