Nyami Abe

South American - The moon-god of the Tukano Indians. Brother of Page Abe. He and his brother ruled alternately, one by night, one by day, each shining as brightly as the other. When Nyami Abe tried to rape his brother's wife, Page Abe gave him a good thrashing that so reduced his power that, thereafter, he could shine only weakly as the moon. Also called Nyami Abe.
