Goddess of the Day: August 28

Ngame - African Goddess of the Soul.  The tribes of Ghana see Ngame as a moon deity, and believe She created the celestial planets. She gave humans souls by shooting lunar rays into them at birth with a bow and arrow.  Girls who were thought to be blessed with Ngame’s mystical powers were raised as royalty, and became the ruling queen and priestess of the tribe.
