Excerpt from El Palacio, Vol. 21: December 15, 1926
Jupiter Pluvius, Odin and Thor, the Lords of the Thunderbolt, are familiar enough in Old World mythology. In the New World the rank and importance of the rain-givers is not less significant, - nay, in certain sections, such as the ever drought-threatened Plains or the arid Southwest, these beings become dominant and at times all-absorbing, so that one of the most interesting chapters of the native mythology is that which deals with a comparative study of the Bowmen of the Sky, the Thunderers, the cloud-winged, who move between Heaven and Earth, the Father and the Mother of All.
