Blackfoot Thunderbird Legend says it is a creature of myth and veneration, and it is considered a supernatural bird of power and strength. Thunder Beings are said to have the power to give life, but also take it away. They can destroy with the wind, cause flood and drought, or burn with lightening; but at the same time, they can also renew and bring the vital rains and nurture all life on earth. Connect to the Thunderbird and align yourself with the Thunder Beings, the keepers of weather and the elements of air.
