The sun of the Kaitish tribe. It is supposed to have arisen in the form of a woman away out in the east, and to have travelled afterwards to a place called Allumba, where a big tree arose to mark the spot. After some time the sun woman went back again to the east, and now it arises every morning in the east, goes round to the west down there, and then during the night travels back under the earth and comes up in the morning.

See also Allinga.
