Cherokee Lightning God 🌩️
Trouble-making Lightning God
The son of Kanati the Hunter and Selu the Corn Goddess, Enumclaw and his brother Kapoonis were known as the Thunder Twins.
Having consulted with spirits, Enumclaw discovered the secret of making fire spears, while his brother Kapoonis mastered the somewhat easier art of hurling very large boulders.
Together they caused all manner of mayhem on Earth. Not very amused, Father Sky grabbed both of them up into his domain and put them to use.
Now Enumclaw makes lightning by casting his fire spears down to Earth, while his brother hurls thunderous boulders across the sky.
