About this title

Synopsis:

RED THUNDER IS a memoir of a People. The story draws from the oral history of the Schee-tsu-umsh Indians, now called the Coeur d'Alene Tribe in Northern Idaho. This unique portrayal of pre-European Native Americans is an authentic work displaying the rich cultural teachings behind Native American life. RED THUNDER is not only about courage, love and family, but about tragedy, hope and renewal as well. Here the oral history traditions of the ancestors are writtend down with the power of heart and soul. Readers of this century will discover a deep, timely relevance that will bring peace, harmony and understanding to their own daily lives.

red thunder \ `red `th?nd?r \ n. A phenomena rarely seen in nature. It is a red flash in the sky at night, evening, or early morning before it is fully light. In our native language, the word "thunder' also may apply to the accompanying and expected lightning. Further, the four thunders are known ancient and holy beings of nature possessing great powers and certain qualities and attributes, lightning being one of them.

Therefore, this red flash is termed for the power or being actually behind it, the Red Thunder, kewl (red) stalonem (thunder) in our language.

The Thunders may be called upon in certain ways and their presence may be interpreted depending upon the situation and whatever ceremonial prayer requests have been offered.

It is a sacred sign.

From the Author:

I wanted to capture the essence of our authentic traditions and customs, our principles and teachings. Our tribe has a long-standing oral tradition and thus I felt the most effective way to bring these teachings to life was through the power of story. The backdrop to the story is part of our genuine oral history regarding the life and times of our great prophet chief, Circling Raven.
