Wabun

Son of Mudjekeewis (North-American Indian), East-Wind, the Indian Apollo. Young and beautiful, he chases Darkness with his arrows over hill and valley, wakes the villager, calls the Thunder, and brings the Morning. He married Wabun-Annung (q.v.), and transplanted her to heaven, where she became the Morning Star. ( Longfellow: Hiawatha.)
