Here on the plains, we get lots of summer storms. When these come, Lakota people say, “Now the Thunders are returning.” When the Thunders come, it is said that they flash their eyes (lightning) and send forth their roars (thunder), often fearfully and ferociously. The lightning is called “wakȟaŋgli”, which comes from two words, “wakȟaŋ” (sacred) and “gli” (to return), because with it, something sacred comes back to earth from the skies. That is why that word is used, so it is said. I guess I was really lucky in taking this picture. A storm was coming on and I was really taking pictures, trying to capture a lightning stroke. And somehow I succeeded. I am very proud of this picture.
