North American - The lightning-spirit of the tribes of the north-west, twin brother of Enumclaw. He became adept at hurling huge boulders while his twin learned the art of throwing fire-balls like spears. To prevent them from doing too much damage, the gods took them up to heaven and made Kapoonis the lord of lightning and Enumclaw the lord of thunder. In some versions, their roles are reversed. In some references, identified as Kapoonis.
