Listen! O now you’re coming in rut. Ha! I am exceedingly afraid of you. But yet you are only tracking your wife. Her footprints can be seen there directed up toward the heavens. I have pointed them out for you. Let your paths stretch out across the tree tops (?) On the lofty mountains (and) you shall have them (the paths) lying down without being upset, Let (your path) as you move along be where the waving branches meet. Listen!
Explanation.
This formula, from A`yû’ninï’s novel, is for driving away, or “frightening” a storm, which threatens to injure the growing corn. The first part is a meaningless song, which is sting in a low tone in the peculiar style of most of the sacred tunes. The storm, which isn’t directly named, is then addressed and announced to be coming on in a fearful manner on the course of his wife, such as a creature in the rutting season. The shaman points her out tracks directed toward the upper areas and begs the storm soul to follow her across the waving tree tops of the lofty mountains, where he shall be undisturbed.
The shaman stands facing the approaching storm with one hand stretched out toward it (the knife in hand). After repeating the song and prayer he softly blows in the direction toward which he wishes it to go, putting his hand in exactly the same direction as though pushing away or cutting the storm. A part of the storm is usually sent to the upper regions of the atmosphere. If standing at the edge of the area, he holds a blade of corn in one hand while repeating the ceremony.
