A two-part, Thinking Allowed video hosted by Jeffrey Mishlove. The Indian way of life is a life in harmony with nature. In this far ranging talk, Rolling Thunder contrasts this with the notion of mankind as dominator over nature. He describes the natural powers of native peoples which emerge from an attunement with nature. These include the ability to communicate with plants and animals, telepathic interactions with each other, and the ability to make rain. He describes his role as a healer using shamanistic methods and also describes his journeys to the worlds of spirits. At the time of this program Rolling Thunder was visiting the San Francisco Bay Area to perform rain ceremonies to help end a drought. Two evenings before the interview he performed a lightning dance. That night, the entire region was surprised by thunder and lightning storm lasting for several hours -- an event which occurs only rarely in the San Francisco area. The late Rolling Thunder, a native Cherokee Indian, was an inter-tribal medicine man. He is the subject of a book titled Rolling Thunder by Doug Boyd. He was an inspiration and influence to such cultural figures as Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead.
