Usage notes[edit]

  • When referring to the sun, kamo is obligatorily unpossessed. When referring to a wristwatch or clock, it can show possession.
  • Kamo is the heavenly body seen in the sky, and also a culture hero of ancient times, when the world was new. Kamo in Wauja stories is always a male figure, even though during a solar eclipse the sun is said to menstruate.
