This paper examines a series of parallelisms between the mythical-functional structure of three deities of the Afro-Cuban pantheon and traditional gender roles in Cuba. It also shows the so-called adjustment of these functions to a dominant gender discourse legitimized by cultural practices. The analysis was carried out by means of discourse analysis and hermeneutics, both of which allowed for the study of the impact of this adjustment, as well as the very functionality of the deities as symbolic imagery, on traditional gender discourse.
