Yellow Bird Indian Dancers Perform Traditional Dance to keep London dry During Olympics
This is not the first time we've reported on panicky officials enlisting the help of American Indians in an effort to get Mother Nature to behave.
Last week British officials reached out to the Yellow Bird Indian Dancers and asked them to perform a traditional dance to "appeal to the Creator to hold back the rain," the Times Live reported.
British Airways flew the group out to help the notoriously rain-prone city stay dry during the Olympics.
"Over the past week I have begun daily prayers and requests to the Creator, asking him to speak to the rain on our behalf," said Chief Ken Duncan to the Times Live.
"I have visited and asked my spiritual elders from various tribes to pray with me. Many will be with me in spirit, and the prayers will continue until I return to Arizona."
The group includes Hoop dancing phenom Tony Duncan.
The Yellow Bird Dancers have no disappointed. So far, the weather has been as perfect as any reasonable person could hope for in typically wet England.
