The rainbird or waterbird is a legendary creature in certain Pueblo indigenous peoples' history and culture. It is considered a supernatural being of power and strength. Heishe or heishi are small disc- or tube-shaped beads made of organic shells or ground and polished stones. They come from the Kewa Pueblo people (formerly Santo Domingo Pueblo) of New Mexico, before the use of metals in jewelry by that people. The metal appears to be sterling, however it is not marked.
