Rain dancing

One time when Black Raven was living on earth, it rained for so long that everything he owned got wet. His clothes and provision began to rot. His underground house filled with water. At last, he said to his eldest son, Emmemqut, "Universe must be doing something up there, let's fly up and see." They went outside, put on their raven coats, and flew to the Universe's place, where they heard the sound of the drum from within. It was Universe who was drumming. His wife, Rain Woman, was beside him. He had cut off her vulva and hung it on the drum. He had also cut off his penis and was using it as a drumstick. When he beat the drum, water poured from the vulva as rain.
