I’m also Native American, and kids in school loved to ask if I had done a rain dance every time it rained (which, living in the Bay Area, happened a lot). Finally I just started lying and saying I had, so kids started thinking I was legit magic.
One kid told his mom, and instead of her thinking he was just being a silly confused kid, she came to school and asked if there was such a thing as a “reverse rain dance” and if I could do one for her birthday (it apparently rained every year prior and she was sick of it). So, my best friend at the time and I did a “reverse rain dance” in my backyard the day before (i.e. we played my drum and danced around like idiots. Highly offensive in retrospect, sorry ancestors).
Lo and behold, it didn’t rain the next day. The day after, the kid’s mom came and gave me a big hug and thanked me profusely for stopping the rain. Hey, maybe I am legit magic...or white people are just ridiculous. You decide.
