Apamandi and abamaanji are appellations of apparent Bakumu origin, reputedly describing "a very heavily built small man, clothed in black hair, but having a light skin", as reported by Charles Cordier.
"Heavily Built Small Man"

There are a set of tracks recorded from Bakumu which the locals say were made by what they call the Apamandi, which they there describe as a very heavily built small man, clothed in black hair, but having a light skin. These prints are approximately eight inches long, very short and broad, and have the strange distinction of having the second toe longer than either the first or third, and being somewhat separated from the first or big toe.
