Thunderbird on North American Rock Art

Shape-shifting Thunderbird Shaman on North American Rock Art

This large bird, the Thunderbird of North America is the Zu bird of Mesopotamia and the Tengu of Nippon. The Primeval Shaman. As the Tribes of North America said, the Thunderbirds could take on human form by removing their beaks as mask and some even intermarried into humanity. A symbol of great medicine to the nomads, and a primordial force to be tamed and conquered by the legends of civilization… Could the ‘Mothman‘ be a Thunderbird? According to the indigenous people of Ohio, the Mothman was a Thunderbird, tied to the Curse of Chief Hokoleskwa(Cornstalk).  Much like a Tiangou the ‘Mothman’ of Point Pleasant was a harbinger of ill omen (change) for civilization. The Mothman even displayed an array of supernatural abilities shared by it’s Japanese counterpart the Tengu.  And from Tiangou we derive Tengu. A Ninzuwu, or ‘One Appearing as the Embodiment of Life and Death (Change)’!

  3. If anything, the Thunderbirds correspond to the moiety of ”angels” called ”the thunders of judgement and wrath”.

    Raven on the otherhand could indeed be called the primordial Tengu-king of the americas..
