This rite is based on the Green Corn Dance used by the Cherokee to celebrate the corn harvest. The Uktena use it to strengthen their ties with their Kinfolk and to remind themselves of their connections with human society. This rite is usually performed to the accompaniment of drums and howls.
This rite is usually led by a female Garou, often an elder, who represents both the Green Corn Woman and Gaia. She stands in the center of the circle of dancers, holding a torch that symbolizes the life-giving warmth of Gaia's bounty. Kinfolk are always invited to participate in this celebration and are vital to its performance. Regular performance of this rite by Garou and their Kinfolk increases the chances for the successful birth of Garou children among the participants.
