by Micha F. Lindemans
The rice-spirit who dwells in the moon, according to the Tomori people of central Sulawesi. They perform sacrifices for Omonga in their rice barns. Without these ceremonies there would be no rice the following year. The spirit has to be treated with proper respect. If the people who fetch the rice from the barn are not properly clad, Omonga will become angry and eat up twice the amount of rice as they have taken out.
