Transition from Fourth To Fifth World: The "Thunder Beings" Return

Richard Boylan, Ph.D.


At the Native American Star Knowledge Conference held in South Dakota in June, 1996, senior Oglala Sioux spiritual elder Looks-For-Buffalo (Floyd Hand) revealed that ancient prophecies are now coming true. These prophecies, heralding immense changes for humankind, point to the imminent return of the Star Nations, what the white man would call extraterrestrial cultures.

The Hopi, Sioux and other tribal traditions hold that at this point in history, we are about to transition from the current pattern of civilization to a radically-different way of living. This change is so profound that it is called the passage from the Fourth (current) World to the Fifth World! By "world", the native traditions refer to a slow gradual rise of the human population to a period of widely-shared cultural and technological high civilization. The implications of these indigenous teachings are staggering. For this means that we humans have gone through three previous Worlds, in which our ancestors rose to a peak of civilized living, only to crash back to a primitive level.

From halfway around the Earth comes additional corroborative information. Mac Ruka, a Maori spiritual teacher, has toured America at the behest of his Maori people to share their ancient history. Ruka tells of a civilization, Mu, from which the Maori came. This civilization once reached ascendancy in the Melanesian Pacific, before it destroyed itself and its island empire sank beneath the ocean. Fragmentary memory of this empire still resides in the mythic history of the West as a place called Lemuria. And what of that other high civilization, Atlantis, which the Greek philosopher Plato stated he learned about from Egyptian historians? Were Atlantis and Lemuria the Second and Third Worlds which the Native American oral histories refer to?

If our present "Fourth-World" high civilization is about to fall and be swept away, we would do well to learn from the history held by these native teachers. For, as philosopher George Santayana has said, "Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." Let us examine in more detail what those master keepers of oral tradition, the Hopi, reveal about our previous Worlds. [1]

The First World was called Tokpela ("Endless Space"). The First People understood that although they had human parents, their real parents were the universal entities which had created them through their parents: Father Sun and Mother Earth. Each learned that they had two aspects: as a member of an earthly family and clan, and as a citizen of the great universe. Gradually the First People forgot to respect their creator. They began to use the vibratory centers of their body [chakras] only for earthly purposes. They began to perceive differences and separation between people and animals, and between different ethnic, linguistic and religious groups. The animals began to draw away from people. The First People began to divide up and draw away from each other. They became warlike and fought. The First World's fatal flaw, then, was forgetting the unifying Oneness of all creation.

But there were a few in every group who held to the original spiritual enlightened path. These were directed by Spirit to migrate to a special underground location. Then, the First World was destroyed by fire: volcanoes erupting and fire raining down from the sky, until there was nothing left but the few faithful people inside the Earth.

After a long time the world cooled off, and a Second World emerged. There was land where water had been, and water where land had been. When the faithful remnant emerged from underground, there was nothing to remind them of the previous wicked world.

They emerged into the Second World, Tokpa ("Dark Midnight"), a big land. The people spread across the land. They communicated telepathically. But this time, the animals stayed apart from them. As the Second World people developed material goods to barter, they became greedy, and traded for things they didn't need and became avaricious. They began to quarrel and fight, and wars broke out. The Second World's fatal flaw, then, was absorption in greed and materialism.

But again, there were a few people who kept faithful to the path of spiritual awareness. And, again, Spirit directed these people to go to a safe underground place. Then Spirit commanded the twin entities who safeguard the Earth's North and South Poles to leave their posts and stop keeping the Earth properly rotating. The Earth teetered off balance, spun around crazily, and rolled over twice. Mountains plunged into seas with a great splash; seas and lakes sloshed over the land. Then the world became cold and lifeless, and froze into solid ice.

Eventually, Spirit ordered the polar entities back to the ends of the Earth's axis. With a great splintering of ice and a shudder, the Earth began rotating again. The ice melted, and the world warmed to life.

Spirit created the Third World, Kuskurza [meaning lost over time][Mu?], arranging land and seas, mountains and plains, and all forms of life. Then Spirit sent a message to the few faithful people underground that it was time to emerge. These survivors multiplied and created great cities, eventually countries, and a whole civilization. But then they became completely occupied with their own earthly plans. They created craft shaped like a shield that could fly, and used them to fly to big cities and attack them. Soon many peoples and countries were engaged in aerial warfare. These Third People also engaged in degraded sexual practices. The Third World's fatalflaw, then, was misusing flight for aerial warfare and misusing sex for promiscuity.

So Spirit directed the few people who lived according to wisdom that they should build vessels and store food in them. Then rainwater was loosed all over the Earth. Waves higher than mountains rolled in upon the land. Continents broke asunder and sank beneath the seas.

Meanwhile, Spirit directed the faithful survivors to travel first to one, then to another island, until finally they reached the Fourth World, Tuwaqachi ("Complete World"). After they had hopscotched across the islands to arrive in the Fourth World, those islands sank into the sea.

That Fourth World is this present world we live in. The survivors spread across the broad lands, and gradually began building up the high civilizations which surround us today. Since this Fourth World is the one we have grown up in, we are aware of the behaviors of those in it. It can accurately be said that, after an initial time of fidelity to the path of wise consciousness, many have fallen into a low level of consciousness. In fact, it can honestly be stated that many people of this Fourth World have fallen into the fatal flaws of the three previous Worlds: forgetting the Oneness of all creation, sinking into greed and materialism, and engaging in promiscuity and aerial mass warfare. But we have added an additional serious element: mass destruction of Earth and its ecological systems. Thus, the Fourth World's fatal flaws are: all of the previous Worlds' ones, plus ecocide, the killing of one's own environment.

And now this Fourth World is coming to an end. Some of the signs indicating this are: extinctions of plant and animal species; poisoning of lands by toxic materials; pollution of the seas; and thinning of the upper atmosphere, "ozone holes", letting in excessive ultraviolet energy, which in turn is killing plant life, causing cancer in humans, and die-offs of phytoplankton, the source of 90%of the oxygen necessary for life. Global warming is destabilizing climates, and upsetting the ecosystems that plants, animals and humans live in.

As the Fourth World careens towards its end, a major new factor is entering the equation: a widespread series of contacts by various extraterrestrial cultures with human individuals. What are these extraterrestrials communicating when they make contact? They express grave concern for how we are killing our planet and therefore ourselves. Their concern extends to the warfare we are almost continually engaged in, and the other forms of violence going on: including people allowing whole populations to die of starvation or disease, while affluent countries stand by. The ETs want us to take responsibility and turn these situations around, before it is too late.

But the extraterrestrials also have come to make us aware that we are not alone; and that our rightful place is to be participants in the larger, cosmic family of intelligent peoples spread across the universe. But first we must eliminate our fatal flaws and reorder our lifestyle. We must live with consciousness of our oneness with all creatures, and with the Creative Source. We must lay aside our greed and materialism, and learn to live more simply and without undue attachments. We must reject promiscuity, and exercise love with consciousness of the sacredness of sexuality. We must set aside aerial mass warfare, and begin to settle differences by diplomacy, by setting good example, by positive peer pressure, and by empowering all peoples. We need to start treating Earth and its ecosystems like our Mother, with respect and cherishing.

As at the end of the previous Worlds, there will be a faithful remnant of this Fourth World who will survive, while the others perish. The Hopi Prophecies say what will happen soon. World War III will be started in the East. Much of the United States will be destroyed, land and people, by nuclear weapon radioactivity. The Four corners area around the Hopi will be preserved as an oasis, to which refugees will flee. But what about those elaborate underground shelters which FEMA [2] has been secretly constructing for the elite to survive in during the coming Earth Changes? The Hopi Prophecy says that underground shelters are a fallacy this time. "It is only materialistic people who seek to make shelters. Those who are at peace in their hearts already are in the great shelter of life."

What will the Fifth World to which we are headed be like? The Prophecy gives a brief glimpse of what is in store. "Those who take no part in the making of world division by ideology are ready to resume life in another World, be they of the Black, White, Red or Yellow race. They are all one, brothers [and sisters]." As for this Fourth World, "Material matters will be destroyed by spiritual beings, who shall remain to create one world and one nation under one power, that of the Creator." The Prophecy goes on to declare the stage we are in now. "The emergence to the future Fifth World has begun. It is being made of the humble people of little nations, tribes and racial minorities. You can read this in the Earth itself. Plant forms from previous Worlds are beginning to spring up as seeds. The same kind of seeds are being planted in the sky as stars. The same kind of seeds are being planted in our hearts. All these are the same." [3]

We are entering the time of Great Purification, as Earth prepares to transition to the Fifth World. This is a period of Earth Changes: major earthquakes, tidal waves, many volcanoes erupting, land subsidence, emergence of new land, climatic changes, disease pandemics, and widespread starvation. Catastrophes of human origin are also in the offing, including: warfare involving weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear, rioting and looting, collapse of monetary systems, and forced migrations. As with the previous Worlds, there will be those who want to cling to the old ways of the Fourth World and resist the need to change. We see them all around us now. And just as surely there will be those who seek to live in harmony with the rest of creation. Sensitive co-existence with other life is not ecological romanticism or fuzzy metaphysics. It is recognition of the true extent of family.

During this transition more than ever before, each of us is being called to serve the Great Spirit, that Center of Consciousness from which everything derives its being. Each of us has an important role during this Great Purification. We need to help find ways for nations, races and tribes to put aside differences, and join together for the good of everyone. We need to help plant and animal species survive. We have to bring to an end the pollution of Earth, and return to our proper role as caretakers of Earth's ecosystems. We need to lay aside the "success" lifestyle of greed and materialism, and learn to adopt a lifestyle of "just enough" and "good enough". We need to move away from the twin follies of promiscuity and puritanism, and learn to reverence sex as the delightful yet sacred activity of appropriately joining opposites to create a higher truth. And we need to lay aside the weapons of war, and operate with that compassion, understanding and economic justice which make for peace.

Where ultimately is this human voyage through a succession of Worlds headed? The Prophecy says that at the center of the universe, there is a place where all the nations originated. It is in the Star Nations galaxy. Before we arrive there, we will transit through nine Worlds.

Native American tradition honors the existence of Thunder Beings. These Thunder Beings are understood by Native Americans to be messengers from the powers on high, the Star People (extraterrestrial visitors). The Thunder Beings are a force for both dissolution and re-creation. In the Plains Indian tradition, a person who has a visit by a Thunder Being, in person, in vision or in dream, becomes a heyoka, a "contrary". [4] This heyoka then customarily soon starts behaving in a way opposite to the conventions of the dominant culture. The heyoka does so, precisely in order to wake up society to see that there are other and fresher ways of doing things. Thus, the heyokais the human counterpart of the Thunder Beings, who repeatedly dissolve the existing order and fashion a new arrangement from the pieces.

As we transition from the Fourth into the Fifth World, it occurs to me that not all heyokas are Plains Indians. Some have yellow skin, others black, others white. These heyokas of every color are experiencers, and have been changed by their experience of extraterrestrial contact by messengers from the sky (Thunder Beings). As modern-day heyokas, experiencers are charged to live as active witnesses against the ignorance and corruption of the Fourth World, and to live as witnesses of the Fifth World which is emerging. In doing so, modern heyokas honor the Thunder Beings, the extraterrestrials, who have come as cosmic midwives to help us birth the Fifth World.

And there are others, too, who have not had a personal extraterrestrial encounter, but who are actively helping humanity move towards cosmic citizenship, and helping usher in the Fifth World society. These are heyokas as well.

In Winter, 1996, high in the Rockies west of Fort Collins, Colorado, a Star Visions Conference was convened by Lakota-Dakota spiritual advisor Standing Elk. There numerous speakers talked about our imminent transition from the current Fourth World to a new Fifth World. On the evening of November 9th, Conference ceremonial leadership switched from Native American males to the women. A Cherokee grandmother recited Crazy Horse's prophecy about these very times, as the Old Age (Fourth World) closes. Then, after a series of moving prayers and ritual declarations, the grandmother elders made a startling official ceremonial declaration: the old era (Fourth World) was ended, and the new age (Fifth World) was being born! A joyous explosion of tumultuous celebration broke out all over the conference auditorium. After a half-hour, the grandmother elders were finally able to call the conference back to order. The elders then declared that this new Fifth World would have as its hallmark the attributes of positive feminine energy. They explained that the Fourth World, which had been hallmarked by male energy dominance, had had its time, and made its contributions. Now that World is passing away. The grandmothers pointed out that the Fifth World being born must not be one of separatist female dominance, but rather one of forming a renewed society of women and men as equals. Fifth World society is shaped by the feminine paths of cooperation, nonaggression, inclusiveness, noncompetitiveness, service rather than dominance, use of psychic and spiritual gifts as well as technology, and living in conscious harmony with nature's ways. [5]

The next morning, a major Colorado newspaper, the Rocky Mountain News, carried the story that "a bold group at Estes Park Center [Star Vision Conference] had declared an end to the current era and the beginning of a Fifth Dimension [World] reality." Word of formal declaration of the birth of the Fifth World was beginning to spread out to the wider society. This process will take time. But it is important to realize that the Fifth World has already begun. Just as the Period of Purification which will end the Fourth World has already begun. During this painful but exciting period of transition, each of us must stand up and choose: status quo, or helping usher in the Fifth World.

Finally, permit me to share with you a personal Thunder Being experience, and then my understanding of the role of heyokas in the Fifth World.

Some years ago I did a hanblechia (vision quest) in the desert near Death Valley. During my isolation, I was presented with a image of a Thunderbird formed by the shadow of a cloud on a snowfield atop a nearby mountain. The image remained a long time, then finally dissipated. The skeptical part of my mind at first tried to minimize this event. However, an hour later another identical Thunderbird image appeared on the same snowfield, and persisted a while. I could not escape the implication for my vision quest: a calling to the path of the heyoka. Later my encounter with Star People confirmed this heyoka journey.

Any and all of you who choose to work to bring in the Fifth World are in my opinionheyokas. Recognize your calling in your behaviors. And then let's get down to work in fashioning this Fifth World. The negative power of the Fourth World cannot be annihilated. It can only be transmuted,by being confronted by the simplicity and cosmic consciousness of the Fifth World's midwives, the heyokas, you (if you wish). We are not alone in this task. The Thunder Beings (ETs) have come to awaken us, test us, and help us transmute. As heyokas, our role is to confront the Fourth World's negative energies, channel and transmute them into cooperative, spiritual, nonaggressive, inclusive, noncompetitive, service-oriented, dominance-rejecting, psychic, highly-conscious, natural and harmonious energies.

As we do so, and thereby evolve forward, the vibratory rate of the biological and consciousness energy fields within us increases. I have noticed that people of like vibratory rate can "hear" and feel each other's inner consciousness level. And here is a miracle. A higher-vibrating person (or heyoka, if you will) is like a tuning fork, tending to create a higher matching (sympathetic) vibration rate in others around who are functioning at a lower (Fourth World) vibratory/consciousness level. Just like a soprano's high note can cause a crystal glass to vibrate, heyokas can cause Fourth Worlders around them to tend to increase their vibratory rate. But Fourth Worlders have choices. They can go along with the higher vibratory/consciousness rate, and transition into the Fifth World. Or they can resist and, like the glass, "shatter", as their outlook is increasingly dissonant with the emerging Fifth World. If they remove themselves from all contact with Fifth World people, they may buy some little time, but in the end they will still have to choose.

As for the heyoka midwives of the Fifth World, recognize that your role is in harmony with your fundamental way of being, and is therefore unavoidable. Therefore, I encourage you to operate at your highest vibration, and help usher in the Fifth World.

[In a following article, Dr. Richard Boylan will explore some of the aspects of what this Fifth World will look and operate like, which is now being created.]

9 Nov 2004 @ 04:05 by skookum : wow
this guy lives in my hometown here. Very interesting article, it rather explains a few things that I wondered about and some things I had experienced. Wish I could meet this guy and talk to him.  

9 Nov 2004 @ 05:41 by vaxen : Ah...
Give him a call skookum. I'm sure that you could arrange a meeting. His phone number is there and his email address too. So what are you waiting for kiddo? Sacramento, eh? This is his website:  

9 Nov 2004 @ 06:27 by skookum : as if
no...I am sure is much to busy with people who have had more factual and interesting experiences.. I have only had dreams.. hardly fodder for much for him to chew on.  

9 Nov 2004 @ 06:44 by ashanti : Maha Yuga
Amazing how this correlates with the Four Ages of the Maha Yuga, and the {link:|Alchemical Secrets of the Lord of the Rings}. This is the side of Colorado I linked up with when I visited in 1996. Estes Park. Durango. The Rocky Mountains. The San Juan mountains. An *incredible* part of the world. The deeper, hidden layer of Love stays protected, building the Fifth World. The Love energy *is* the protection. Like a Shambhalla. In opposition, there is a lot of really dark heavy stuff going on, such as that at {link:|Denver Airport}. When I landed there, without knowing anything about it, my hair stood on end. I felt better as soon as I was well away from the airport.

The Fifth world *is* on its way. The way of Love, which by its indefinable nature, escapes duality.  

9 Nov 2004 @ 07:49 by vaxen : Hi...
Ashanti. It is strange because when I was last in Denver airport, 97, I felt really wonderful. When my plane landed there I was overcome with a deep and abiding peace. Maybe it's because I'm a Marcabian Mind Control Technician/Implanter? I loved the place! Hmmm

I did spend some time in Denver in the latter part of the 80's and really loved the city and the surround. Of course you know that Shamballa University/School was established in Boulder by Rinpoche. The whole area is fabulous. The four points region is supposed to be the 'safe' area though for the upcoming 'tribulation times.'

I've been in that area, too, and could have gone there for some social work but decided on Atlanta instead. However I do have a couple of Spirit guides I comm., with from that area. Thankyou for the links. Good to see you back...

Skookum you would benefit from getting in touch with him and you may wish to overcome your lack of confidence in yourself through affirmations or whatever it takes.

Many times 'dreams' are covers for contact experiences. So do'nt let that be an excuse! ;) I hope you do get in touch with him as I think you'd hit it off in a big way. Please try...

PS: Ashanti the truth at all times is that you are always a Co-Existing Static that is simply viewing your Self and Co-Created illusions which are all lies. ;) You know, tone 40...Native State. ;) L.Y.  

9 Nov 2004 @ 07:51 by skookum : perhaps.. the biggest
problem.. is WHEN lol

I can just see what my husband would think of this.. eeeeeegaads.  

9 Nov 2004 @ 08:42 by ashanti : Layers
Maybe I was just plugged into the wrong layer at the airport. I was met by J.A...and L.W was out to "get" me....Or maybe you are really a Markab mind-controller. ;-) In any case. It didn't spoil the rest of the time, which was just incredible. I put a "spirit" marker out there with that energy, which is definitely American-Indian driven. I am still in touch with it, fully, which is a privilege. Skookum - what are you waiting for!!!!!!  

9 Nov 2004 @ 11:00 by vaxen : I am...
sure that L.W. was NOT the only one. You are too. So...Illuminates aside, the ones who built the airport, there is plenty there that is of the 9th Dynamic (Aesthetics).

However we do have Mobile Implant Stations and are adept at Psychic Warfare so...

You may have been tuning into obvious threats. "We deliver IMPLANTING to your home and no tips required when we do." Is'nt that nice of us? I knew you'd think so.

You know that 'The Pilot' was taken out with direct physical, one on one, implanting, using the tech called PDH, yes?

NOT ISNESS towards the Global Implanters is how they will win.

Stay alert to two things:

1)Keep your eye on the product of becoming a FREE BEING at all times.
2)Recognize when you are in a Theta Trap even when it looks pretty or feels good.

SCNs' (The real one) purpose and product is a FREE BEING! ;) You know how to recognize an implant station or a theta trap yes?

Do'nt forget that we were here before the American Indians, so called, and that we left a lot of tech they know nothing about at all. Be that as it may it is really nice to see that you made it here before SatUrDay. KSW

Skookum, Ashanti is right! Make the time and forget what the Jones's will think! heh heh heh I do so hope that you will give a call and have some fun. May do you a world of good getting you in contact with some kin-dred folk.

Love you both. Nighty night. Thanks for the lovely comments.  

9 Nov 2004 @ 11:13 by ashanti : One more for the Road....
Yep, you're right about LW not being the only one. And I know what happened to the Pilot. Exactly. I knew they were going to do it to him. I wrote to him to try and warn him. Sadly, he didn't heed it. He ack'd politely. Like so very many, he thought he was invincible. But he'll be OK in the end. We all will. Thanks for the helpful reminders. :-) Love you too.  

9 Nov 2004 @ 11:57 by jobrown : Talk about Masons


9 Nov 2004 @ 12:09 by ashanti : blueboy
Yes! Thanks, {link:|THAT} was the link I was looking for.  

10 Nov 2004 @ 06:48 by koravya : Good Reading
on the heyoka.

22 Dec 2006 @ 22:07 by Delfin Alfa @ : Thunder Beings
Masons build things with all kinds of stuff. Brick, wood, steel, concrete, etc., Originally Guilds operating for group protection from hostiles where the task of building bridges and walls and ditches and things like cities fell to the ''builders.'' like King Solomons builders that came out of Ireland and were known as Gjinn because of the Red Color of their hair...

Asymptotically one mit du und all thingen becomin. ;) Heh,  

21 Jun 2009 @ 21:09 by swanny @ : Why?
What is in it for us?

What is the benefit of helping you
and the cost of not helping you when you are source of your own misfortune?

Repent sinner

Pray that Jesus may have compassion on you.

in leu of that get a job or start a legal business.


15 Aug 2010 @ 22:45 by Quetzal Ocelotl @ : The coming world changes.
I am Native American on my father's side and Jewish on my mother's side. I have been trained in Mesoamerican traditions known as Nahualism, a tradition that existed from what is now Southwest US down through the Southern part of Belize. These traditions produced the myths you describe in your stories in various forms with certain cultural changes. The Mayans like the Hopi for instance believe this is the 4th world while our tradition believes this is the 5th world. Our traditions are well documented by the European cultures that overtook our civilizations without much effect. If you read the speeches of Native leaders before the Congress of the US during the Centuries of conflict we have repeatedly described these coming events and the destination of the world under the current guidance of the Western Material culture.

I can describe our human condition thus, we will survive the changes into the new world only if we can justify our existence under the new aegis or the new conditions for existence. What sounds simple is not. We must be convincing to our soul for our soul is the true cause for our continued existence on this plane of reality. Most human beings are seldom aware nor listen to their soul's communication to our conscious mind, our heart is the only vessel that experiences our soul, most people have learned since childhood to deaden their hearts in order to live comfortably in the conditions set by human activity since early times.

Our inner child rules our heart, if your inner child has no voice in your life you will be unable to listen to your heart, if you can't listen to your heart, you are unable to listen to your soul. If God no longer rules your inner child it means your mind rules your inner child and that is a terrific task to support your inner child over your mind. You will have to revisit each tiny decision that incrementally relinquished your heart to your mind. If these tasks seem unreal or unavailable to your senses, then your chance of success diminish dramatically.

Followers of Jesus, Buddha, Moses have a good chance if they can follow these teachings as they were intended. All modern churches and religions are unreliable in this process. For instance, Jesus taught was most simple yet profound. When Jesus returned as Christ he taught his disciples for months, attempting to instill His gospel without error. He was unsuccessful in His bid as He kept hearing the same questions after answering them. In fact they shut their hearts and ears to that which made them submit to the very self authority I am explaining to you now. If mankind had submitted to that self authority we would not need the current tribulation we are facing. We abound in teachers and truth, the writings and sayings of the wise are everywhere but so many hearts are closed and impervious while people lament to know the truth while closing their hearts as did Jesus' disciples so many thousands of years ago. Even the Jews, when God intervened on their behalf in their waking sight failed so miserably that they were forced to 40 years in the dessert under perilous conditions to learn what they were so unwilling to learn in the sight of God.

No matter how profound the examples God's Will provides, we as humans, many will not open their hearts under the most grievous and severe examples of wrath and destruction. Right now we live under God's grace and love, in a world quite reminiscent of the Garden of Eden and despite this love, humans behave as if this world is not a blessing but an entitlement.

The ideas that religion not our actions are what are important to God is spurious. Human culture and construction are quite irrelevant compared to those things that God judges as important. Deep in our hearts and soul we all know the difference so we have the answers and the questions already. Watch your own actions and feelings over any given hour while attempting to see yourself honestly, without any glossing or manipulation of reality. If you can judge yourself honestly for 10 minutes, you can work up to an hour. All traditions have some sort of language to describe this process. ours is recapitulation what we carry around as baggage from dishonesty is called Cargo, some call it Karma. Whatever name you use begin now and do not stop until the new world has arrived and you find yourself a part of it.

I really enjoyed reading this. It was fantastic, in that it was informative and insightful. It was not written in a way that spoke above or below other people and it is well worth the read, thank-you.  

3 Aug 2011 @ 15:21 by jennifer walters @ : article about thunder beings
having just had an experience with a thunder storm on bear butte (mountain in south dakota) and reading about "thunder beings" in a book about black elk, i decided to do a little research about thunder beings. that research led me to this article. i am grateful to have been led to it. THANK YOU, rich!
