Aharaigichi is the supreme being among the Abiponeans, which they also call. Kebetor Groaperikir (" grandfather"). They acknowledge him not alone as their creator, but also as the creator of the cultured white people, the Spaniards. To the Spaniards he gave clothes, gold, and silver; but to the Abipoineans he gave courage, strength, and fearlessness. The Pleiades are his symbol. The natives consider him sick when these go away, and hold festivals of joy when they return. They have no priests but sorcerers, who stand in great esteem on the occasion of these festivals.
