Iroquois Mythology

The Gods and Spirits of the Iroquois

HINU

Iroquois Thunder God

Also known as Hé-No, Heno, Hino, Hinon, Hinun

Such a nice reliable Thunder God

And his consort is the gentle rainbow. He went immediately to the rescue of his comrade Gunnodoyak, killing a Giant Water Snake and resuscitating his fellow deity after a savage swallowing.

Modest and self-deprecating as he is, we are able to reveal that it was his swift action that prevented the Stone Giants from taking over the world. No fuss. He just did the job. Smashed them to bits.
