Following up on the current report of Thunderbirds or Mothmen from the Standing Rock Indian Reservation mentioned yesterday, I wanted to share this map of the location of the sightings.
The Lakota and Dakota have stylization their representations of Thunderbirds for hundreds of years.
How some of these have come into white culture is as subtle as these designs published in Boy’s Life a few decades ago.
Boy’s Life, the Boy Scout magazine, used to have a monthly column from “Whittlin’ Jim” (1946-1991), and this is an example of one of his “slides of the day.” All were without copyright.
