Within the lore of many Native American tribes, the Thunderbird is a sacred and spiritual bird of amazing size and strength. It is sometimes seen as a single entity, or as a race of avians that sore across the sky. It is said that when the Thunderbird beats its wings, storm clouds gather as the wind is stired. As it flaps its wings, it produces the sound of thunder. As it blinks its eyes, it produces the flashes of lightning. It is also said that lightning bolts are caused bt the glowing snakes that it carries around with it or that they are shot from its eyes. It is usually depicted as a multi-coloured bird with sharp teeth within its beak and two, curling horns atop its head.
Many tales of the Thunderbird are told throughout various Native American tribal history, some even claiming that it could take on the form of a human. It is seen among all tribes as intelligent but wrathful, leading to terrible disasters if it is angered. However, it is also seen as extremely benevolent and is noted as the one that exterminated the Unktehila, a vicious race of reptiles associated with sudden death.
