*"Many indigenous peoples and tribes have beliefs and practices that form the core of their
culture and lifestyle. For the Navajo tribe, the image of the Thunderbird, a powerful and
mighty supernatural creature with immeasurable strength is among the most worshipped images in the group.
The Thunderbird can be found depicted in many of their ornaments and clothes, and is given high respect
because of its power of the land" *Navajo Code Talkers
