Waha! expects us to steal from the other tribes because their beasts and their women are safer in our hands. The other tribes, condemned to herd lesser animals, constantly lust after our own herd-beasts and so attempt to steal them again and again. We are to be vigilant against people of the other tribes because they are scum and give them a good hiding if we catch them sneaking around.

Although every Praxian has heard of the Three Feathered Rivals but that does not mean that they are obliged to treat their worshippers with respect. Given that Raven is a trickster, it would be unusual for his worshippers not to steal from his tribe. I think instead that most Praxians upon meeting a Raven worshipper would demand that the worshipper prove himself by undergoing the Thunderbird test - i.e. they try and beat him up and the Raven worshippers tries to get away.
