HELLO THUNDER BIRD WE SHALL PRAY AND ADMIRE YOU FOR HOURS!
The Chinook believed that men came to this Earth by eggs that were laid by The Great Thunder bird(their god). Women on the other hand were believed to come from rocks that were buried underneath the soil, because of this men believed that they were better than woman and so they would have more rights as opposed to women. In the tribe this also meant that men were more respected, as opposed to women. It also meant that men did all the difficult jobs in the tribe, such as hunting, fishing and fighting, while the women's only job was to take care of the kids in the village.
The Chinook honored and respected the environment, they believed that the Earth's natural resources were gifts from their god. Because of this the Chinook used all of their given resources, they believed that if they used their resources they would honor the Thunder Bird because they were using his gifts. They had their own stories on how the Thunder Bird gave them more resources, for example, they believed that every time they cut down trees, the Thunder Bird would supply them with seeds so that they could be replanted. The Chinook interacted with their environment by using all of their resources because they were believed to be gifts, but also by helping out in the production of more resources.
The Chinook believed that thunder and the Thunder Bird was their god and that the original 5 men were hatched from eggs that were laid by the great Thunder Bird. This made them believe that the Thunder Bird was their god and that the sky and lighting was his home. This belief made them respect all birds in the Earth, they also prayed to the Thunder Bird by honoring him with salmon and various other gifts. The Chinook admired the Thunder Bird because it was their god and he was the reason for the Chinook's existence.
