Yellow Bird Indian Dancers ask rain to stay away for Olympics

The Yellow Bird Indian Dancers, an Apache dance group from Arizona, performed a "no rain" dance for the 2012 Olympic games in London.

London has seen a record-breaking amount of rain in the last several weeks, putting a damper on preparations for the Olympics. So Ken Duncan, the leader of the dance group, asked the creator for mild weather.

“I am asking the rain to watch from afar and see the many people from the many lands come together and play as one," Duncan said, according to news reports.

The group taught Olympic staff a dance in case they need to perform it, according to news reports.
