Gamab

by Micha F. Lindemans
The supreme deity of the Haukoin people of southern Africa. He lives in a high heaven, even above the heaven of the stars. He shoots arrows at humans and who gets hit must die. That makes him a god of fate, the master of life and death. The bushmen call him Gauna and among the Khoikhoi he is known as Gaunab.
