There is a Maasai tribal village in the African savanna which has the incredible ability to bring on rain every time villagers perform their rain dance.
Each year, during the dry season, the landscape in this part of the world turns from a lush green to a shriveled, blighted brown. The lakes shrink to their cracked beds, and at some point, as the water supply becomes dangerously low. That’s when the people of the village gather to take part in a fertility ceremony, hoping to hasten the onset of the rainy season.
The dance these villagers perform is virtually indistinguishable from the dance performed at any number of surrounding villages. They use the same rhythms, the same chants and even the same movements. But the results of the ceremony at this particular village are remarkable. While the dances the neighboring villagers perform bring on rain some of the time, the dance of this special village manages to bring on rain one-hundred percent of the time.
