Native American Storm fabulous creature

Also known as THUNDERBIRD, THUNDER-BIRD, WAKINYAN

Shockingly Powerful Bird Spirit

The Thunder Bird, or birds, depending who you ask. A nature spirit of great importance.

The flapping of WAUKHEON on his way to war makes the sky shake with thunder — and when he glances down to earth, lightning hits the ground.

WAUKHEON constantly battles with UNTUNKTAHE the Water God. Will they ever settle for a draw?

Images of WAUKHEON are famously found sitting on the top of TOTEM-POLES. As powerful symbols of nature, war, strength and victory, it’s no wonder every tribe has a Thunder Bird to look over them. Thunder Gods are go!
