TONENILI

Navajo Rain God

Also known as Tó Neinilii

God of Rain who loves to clown around in the clouds

Very mischievous and likes nothing better than a good downpour at the wrong moment. Shades of Kokopelli there. In fact, both of them sound like Italian comics. Coincidence?

You’ve seen his followers dressed as birds doing their ‘Come Fly With Me’ and ‘Singing in the Rain’ routines. Does it work? Of course it does!

Apart from rain-dancing, the only other guaranteed method of making rain that we know of is to hold a barbecue.
