Native American tribes have maintained numerous mythologies regarding deities throughout their histories. Native American belief systems include many sacred narratives. Such spiritual stories are deeply based in Nature and are rich with the symbolism of seasons, weather, plants, animals, earth, water, sky, and fire. Deities play a large part in these narratives. Gluskab - kind protector of humanity. Malsumis - cruel, evil god. Tabaldak - the creator.

"Readers who enjoyed Storm's classic Seven Arrows, an exploration of Native American culture, will especially treasure the engrossing reading experience provided in this magnificent volume."--Body, Mind & SpiritIn this gripping spiritual autobiography that begins where Seven Arrows ends, Hyemeyohsts Storm chronicles his life and how it has been enriched by the power and intricate sophistication of a discipline that reaches back tens of thousands of years to the Mayans and beyond.As a young Cheyenne-Sioux-German mixed blood--a metis--distrusted by white and "full blood" alike, Lightningbolt is a "reservation kid" bitterly obsessed with poverty and warfare. He seems destined for a tragic end until he meets Estcheemah, one of the most powerful Medicine Chiefs who has ever lived. Moved by her power as a Healer and Self-Teacher, Lightningbolt begins his initiation, learning of the old temple-schools, the discovery of the eternal Zero, and the myriad interlocking Medicine wheels which mirror Sacred Life and the Universe; the balance of Female and Male; and the Circle of Law, the first democracy created by humans. These teachings are shared with the reader not only through words but through full-color Medicine Wheel illustrations, breathtaking nature photography, and fascinating re-creations of Mayan art and artifacts.         A rich blend of spiritual adventure, lyrical beauty, profound wisdom, and love, Lightningbolt delivers a courageous and timely message--that the Medicine Wheels are an inheritance that belongs to all of Earth's peoples. They have the power to transform not only each individual but also the course of humanity. The legacy of the Medicine Wheels renews our understanding of the true intelligence of our Sacred Mother Earth, and teaches that without healing of the Self there can be no healing of the world.

This is the most amazing book I have ever read! It changed my life for the better in so many ways.

I have bought copies for my friends and family and have personally read it to my children.

I try to live my life in a manner consistent with the brave women and men who risked their lives to preserve the great Medicine Wheel teachings for humanity.

The teachings in this book will solve all of the problems that we face today, as they have throughout all of history.

Buy as many copies of this book as you can, while you can.

Thank you Grandfather Storm, may we accept your challenge and the responsibility that Mother Life has given us.

I want to give Lightningbolt a higher rating but am slowed by matters of style and typesetting. It's a bulky book with wide pages and many large blank spaces that are great for note-taking, but even scribblers like me don't need that much space. Most pages are two columns, with many historical pages in single column, the paragraphs so wide they become harder to read. This challenge is not eased by a different, distracting font.

I wonder too about the research: Do all revelations come from the memory of Estcheemah, or are some sources not mentioned? The book would benefit from footnotes (dates of conversations, book resources, etc.) and captions (the photos and graphics would come alive if captions were on the same page, rather than hidden in the back pages). Late in the book, when discussing the number Ten as symbol of the Higher Self, his discussion really comes to life when he inserts himself and his study of the Greek myths as complementary to Zero Chief discoveries. Wish we had more of that personal animation in these Medicine Wheel discussions.

Yet I find the content so valuable I know I'm the one who needs to maintain discipline; that I must be the one to maintain focus on the Vision Quest for Self: a lifelong process, as Estcheemah, Lightningbolt's great teacher, knows the struggle to be. Many insights are as profound as anything from C.G. Jung, and are as archetypal as anything Joseph Campbell championed. If Campbell had lived another decade (Lightningbolt published in 1994, Campbell dying in 1987), I'm sure he would have seen far beyond the flaws that bother me.

One analogy is especially haunting: Imagine the current United States devastated by some terrible war, with three-quarters of its total population wiped out, including almost all teachers, leaving few students willing to learn from those surviving teachers. That is what happened to Native Americans, collectively miscalled "Indians," their true name Pnaci, according to Wolfhawk Martinez, who wrote a letter to the L.A. Times (October 20, 1991). With the vast immigration [invasion] from Europe, seen partly as a war against savages, countless tribes were not only annihilated, but also lost their Medicine Men and Women. Any survivors were scorned and dreaded by politicians and missionaries who hated their sacred dances, military overseers eventually executing many Natives who practiced the Sun Dance despite prohibitions.

The ideas in Lightningbolt are not just about Native American Studies. They are, as Estcheemah repeatedly suggests, for all Earth's people. The principles of this Quest for Self are simplicity itself, but still take great effort and discipline to master. And that's why I hope, even twenty years after first publication, that Lightningbolt will still find a much wider audience.

Have loved this bood for some time and have recently purchased my own copy and gifts for three other people. Gives an account of a side of Native American history that I was not familiar with going back to Mexico and the migration into Canada. Breaks down the political structure of early civilization as well as tells Storm's story.

I was on a vision quest in my life looking outside and was taught by elders and others to look within and with the help of this Book and Hyemeyohst Storm and other books he wrote I was able to learn more and feel more in touch with the earth medicine of Nature and its often looked over healing power The Power of One "Nature" may we all find our way to a place of peace and serenity within and share it by being..
