North American - An Iroquois brave. Most of his tribe had been wiped out by plague and his own wife, Shanewis, was on the point of death. He went in search of herbs to cure her and found none but heard a voice telling him to release the healing waters under the earth. He dug until his strength ran out and released the underground stream, the water from which made him strong again. He carried some of the water back to his wife and saved her life. Sometimes known as Nekumonta.
