Like Blood Clot Boy, Rabbit Boy arose from a blood clot. This time the clot was found by a rabbit, who kicked it around in play. This motion caused the clot to transform itself into a little boy, whom the rabbit took home to raise with his wife: they named him We-Ota-Wichaska, or Much-Blood Boy.

When he grew up, his parents told him the truth: he was a human, not a rabbit, and although they loved him dearly, he must now leave to find his own people.

It was still very early in the dawn of the world, and there was only one village of people. He found it, and the people marveled at his beauty and the fine quality of his buckskin clothes, and appreciated his kind heart. They gave him the most beautiful girl in the village as his wife. Other boys, led by the wicked Iktome, were jealous, and tied him up, killed him, butchered him, and cooked him in a stew.

A great storm arose, during which he reformed his body and ascended to the sun.
