ACCORDING TO THE BARANSAMA PEOPLES, ROMI KUMU THE CREATOR OF THE EARTH AND EVERYTHING IN IT. SHE IS THE RULER OF THE TREES, OF THE NIGHT, OF EARTH, OF AIR, AND THE MOTHER OF ALL PEOPLE. SHE WAS A FEMALE SHAMAN WHO MADE A GREAT GRILL OUT OF CLAY AND PLACED IT IN THE MOUNTAINS; IT BECAME THE SKY. THEN, SHE OPENED THE WATER DOOR TO THE SKY AND LET WATER COME GUSHING ONTO THE EARTH...AFTER WHICH, SHE CREATED ALL OF THE CREATURES.

NOW, AS THE TALE GOES, ROMI KUMU HAD IN HER POSITION A SPECIAL GOURD THAT THE BARANSAMA PEOPLE COVETED. THEY CHASED AFTER HER AND FINALLY CAUGHT UP TO HER IN THE EAST. SHE TRIED FENDING THEM OFF BY GIVING THEM A GOURD, BUT IT WASN'T THE ONE THAT THEY WANTED, AND THE PEOPLE BECAME VERY ANGRY WITH HER. THEY WERE SO ANGRY THAT THEY WANTED TO KILL HER, BUT BEFORE THEY GOT THE CHANCE, SHE HAD CLIMBED UP INTO THE SKY AND BECAME THE PLEIADES.

"TODAY, ROMI KUMU IS REPRESENTED IN RITUAL AS A SPECIAL GOURD WHICH DEPICTS THE SKY; IT IS FILLED WITH BEESWAX. THE GOURD IS CONSIDERED A 'WOMB' AND THE SCENT OF THE BURNING WAX DENOTES FEMALE SEXUALITY. "
