Because their holy land is Prax.

>worshipping?

Genert was a Giant who ruled Prax and the Wastelands too. He was
killed by the Devil in the Great Darkness.

The Animal Nomads are the most numerous remnant of Genert's land.
Other extinct peoples included the Copper Warriors, the Sky Spears
(under Yamsur), the Golden People, and the White Elves. The
Oasis people and the Elves of Redwood are less sucessful survivors.

When Genert was killed, the ancestors of the Animal Nomads would
have died out too like everybody else save that Waha appeared and
made the Survival Covenant between Man and Beast. The Animal
Nomads survive because they follow Waha and his ways.

Pavis was a hero who invaded Prax during the Imperial Age and
build a Great City that bears his name. It was sacked and
ruined by nomads and trolls. Pavis may have been attempting
to resurrect a forgotten fragment of Genertan myth but no
details are known.
