Wind and Thunder are brothers in the sky, according to Native American legend. Long ago, they quarrelled when Thunder claimed he could do good on Earth without help. Wind dispersed to the Earth's far corners, leaving Thunder behind in the still air. Thunder brought mighty storms, but without the cooling Wind, the air was hot and crops failed. He could do no good alone. Thunder called, "Brother, you are nowhere. I beg you to come back for the good of the Earth." The Wind returned, and worked with Thunder to refresh the land. In this pattern, smaller arrows represent the movement of Wind as he scatters to the end of the World. Larger arrows show his path as he returns to work with Thunder.
