This composition is in one movement, and the four sections contain the following subtitles:

Moonrise - a duet for flute, slidewhistle and crotales

Night Sounds - the percussion imitates crickets, frogs, locusts and even a woodpecker at dusk, while the flute responds with bird calls

Gathering at the Ninnescah River - a call for the community to gather for the cememony

Around the Ceremonial Fire - everyone makes preparations for the ritual dance - the Rainmaker performs his Rain Dance
