The Rite of Thanksgiving is a seasonal level 2 Uktena Rite. It is based on the Green Corn Dance of the Cherokee. This rite is usually led by a female Garou, who represents both the Green Corn Woman and Gaia. She stands in the center of the circle of dancers, holding a torch that symbolizes Gaia's warmth and bounty. Kinfolk are always invited to participate in this celebration. Doing this rite regularly increases the chance of a Garou child being born.
