North American - An eagle, the bringer of rain. In the lore of the Iroquois, this great bird was the companion, with Keneu, of the thunder-god, Hino. One of his functions was to put out forest fires started by demons by scooping up water in his wings and dropping it on the blaze. Others say that he had a hollow in his back which was full of dew which he used for this purpose. At times, referred to as Oshadagea.
