Tó Neinilii is the rain god of the Navajo (Diné) people of Arizona and New Mexico, known for having fun and playing tricks. In the tribal dances, he is represented by a masked man who enacts the part of a clown. In Diné myths, he is the fool who dances about in order to show that he is pleased with what is happening. Tó Neinilii was said to often argue with the Navajo god Nohoilpi. In times of drought or misfortune due to the weather, it was often said that Tó Neinilii had lost a bet with Nohoilpi. – Julius Backman Jääskeläinen
