In Northwest Coast Indigenous legend, a Thunderbird is a mythical creature of great power and beauty.

According to tradition, a Thunderbird is the source of storms, a force that is sometimes good, sometimes bad, bringing rain to the land, but also flooding and storm damage. It generates thunder by beating its wings, and creates lightening with the flash of its eyes, as they open and close. In some tribes, the Thunderbird is considered a messenger of the Creator; or a symbol of strength and protection from evil spirits.
Native Thunderbird Beading
The image of the Thunderbird figures prominently in Indigenous culture, on totems, paintings, and many other works, both decorative and spiritual.

Inspired by this legend, Laurentian Chief has created a traditional men’s moccasin that features hand-beaded Thunderbird detailing. This handsome loafer is classic in style, made with supple but strong moose-hide leather in cork brown, hand-stitched gathered vamp and rawhide laces.
