Thunder and Lightening

A Chumash Legend

There are two brothers who live in the upper world. They sometimes play the hoop and pole game. One rolls the hoop and the other runs after it and tries to pierce it with his pole. That is what causes thunder. Also they can throw a light they have to make lightning, and when it hits the ground it makes flint.
