They believe, for example, that the sun rises each morning only because Polinakas pray for it to rise each night. Spring comes only when Polinakas pray for winter to end. The constellations move through the sky only because Polinakas pray each week that they do.

Polinakas believe in complete equality of the sexes, except during the period of labor, and for two years after childbirth, during which time women are expected to have no interaction with religion or society, and are expected to devote all their time to their new child. Following that period, whatever occupation they had before is resumed.
