The Thunderbird is a legendary creature in North American Indian history and culture. It’s considered a “supernatural” bird of power and strength. It is especially important, and richly depicted, in the art, songs and oral histories of many Pacific Northwest Coast cultures, but is also found in various forms among the peoples of the American Southwest, Arizona,New Mexico,Colorado, & Utah and Great Plains.
The thunderbird petroglyph symbol has been found across Canada and the United States including Alaska and within nearly all Native North American people’s legends and stories.
