The Nyokum goddess, the goddess of prosperity is invoked for her blessings so that there may be more and more production of food-grains in the next harvesting season, that the visit of famine may be warded off, and that drought or flood may not hamper cultivation, nor should any insect or animal destroy plants and crops. The Goddess is invoked so that the human race may be strengthened and regenerated. All should be free from unnatural death like accidents, war and epidemic.


It is also believed that there are numerous deities and spirits on Earth. These are the deities and spirits of mountains, rivers, forest, animals, crops, household, etc.  Some of the spirits are benevolent while some  are malevolent. It is believed in Nyishi Tribe that human being can live a life of peace and prosperity on this earth only when a perfect harmony is maintained between man, God and nature. They also believe that prosperity and happiness can come to a man when God and nature are pleased.

Misery, hardship and natural calamities like famine, flood, drought, earthquake, epidemic, warfare, accidental death and such unwanted incidents occur due to the displeasure and wrath of the God and Goddess of nature. It is, therefore, the Nyishi worship to propitiate the benevolent Gods and Goddesses for protection and prosperity and to ward off the malevolent spirits from disturbing the peace and tranquility in their life. Nyokum Yullow is one of such propitiation.
