My father was greatly influenced by his grandmother Matilda Catherine Jacobs Daugherty – Choctaw.

During times of drought, if he found a snake he would kill it and lay it on its back in the sun to bring rain. He said his grandmother taught him this and he believed it.

Has anyone else ever heard of this in Choctaw tradition?
