Sepé was an brave good Indian who fought against the aliens to defend the Land of the Missions. He was ordained by God and Saint Miguel: was born with a moon in the forehead. In the dark nights or in full combat, Sepe shined as the moon, leading his soldiers missioneiros (missioneiros – from the Mission). When he died, wounded by Spanish and Portuguese weapons, God, our Lord, withdrew from the moon in his forehead, and placed him in the Pampa sky to be the guide of all the “gauchos”.
Missioneiro – people from Mission Region
Mission region – a place in Rio Grande do Sul state
