Artist Statement: It is believed that great spirits had visited our people and offered great knowledge to protect us and guide us. Our people carry that knowledge and hand it down from generation to generation. The Thunderbird was a supernatural spirit respected respected for its strength and power of creating thunder with the clap of its wings and lightening with the blink of its eyes. The beings sometimes displayed the knowledge of the spirits on there everyday materials such as a canoe which is why this canoe has the Great Supernatural Thunderbird on the sides. Giving the Canoe the name of "Thunder On The Water".
