WAUKHEON
Also known as THUNDERBIRD, THUNDER-BIRD, WAKINYAN

A picture showing the legend of WAUKHEON taken from our Native American mythology archives. Illustration by Chas Saunders. Read the story below or search the index for more Native American Gods, Native American Goddesses, heroes, demons and monsters!

The Thunder Bird. He's 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!

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Waukheon graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Waukheon movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Waukheon statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Waukheon. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
