Quick Reference

(Lokoiya, Oxoriuk/Sudan)

The oldest remembered ancestor of the Lokoiya or Oxoriuk is Lurubot, who at least ten generations ago purchased Pirisak Hill from Okali of the Luluba by giving him his daughter Aito in marriage, from which time the two peoples have lived in amity.

Lurubot talked with God, who sent him down two rainstones from heaven. The rain chief is a person of paramount importance; the rain power is transmitted in the male line, to son, brother, or nephew. The chief of the land, Oxobumiji, performs two annual ceremonies, at the time when the rain breaks and at harvesttime. God is the author of thunder and lightning; he made men, and when he pleases kills them.
