"BUNZI "IS A RAIN AND FERTILITY GODDESS OF ZAIRE WHO IS DEPICTED AS A RAINBOW COLORED SNAKE. SHE WAS THE DAUGHTER OF KUITIKUITI, THE WAVING ONE, AND HIS WIFE, MBOZE, THE FERTILE ONE. THEY LIVED IN HARMONY BENEATH THE RAPIDS OF THE CONGO RIVER WITH THEIR SON, MAKANGA...BRINGING LIFE TO THE PEOPLE AND WATCHING OVER THEM. THEN, KUITIKUITI NOTICED THAT HIS WIFE WAS WITH CHILD, SWELLING WITH LIFE, BUT WHEN MBOZE WAS ABOUT TO GIVE BIRTH TO A MULTI-HUED SERPENT, KUITIKUITI KNEW THAT HIS WIFE HAD COMMITTED INCEST WITH THEIR SON. KUITIKUITI GRABBED HOLD OF A CLUB AND BEAT HIS WIFE TO DEATH, BUT, DYING, SHE GAVE BIRTH TO A SERPENT DAUGHTER, BUNZI.

THE SERPENT, BUNZI, THE COSMIC SERPENT, FLOURISHED AND GREW AND CAME TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO ACCOMPLISH A TASK THAT HAD ONCE BEEN HER MOTHER'S...BRINGING RAIN; THUS, SHE TOOK OVER HER MOTHER'S DUTIES AS RAIN GODDESS.

AND SO IT WAS THAT THE RAINS CAME AND THE FOOD PLANTS GREW TO NURTURE THE PEOPLE WHO WOULD LOOK FOR BUNZI IN THE SKY. AND FROM TIME TO TIME, SHE WOULD APPEAR TO THEM AS A MULTICOLORED ARC, A RAINBOW, AND AT OTHER TIMES, JUST AS THE SUN BEGAN ITS DESCENT INTO THE NIGHT, SHE COULD BE SEEN IN THE RIPPLES OF THE WATER, GLEAMING, PREGNANT WITH THE LIFE-GIVING WATER, THE RAIN.

INVOKE BUNZI FOR PLENTIFUL RAINS AND HARVESTS. AND AS YOU PLANT YOUR SEEDS THIS SPRINGTIME, MAKE SURE TO MAKE AN OFFERING IN THE SPIRIT OF BUNZI AND MBOZE.
