Description of Yowshkonimkee Whatay (Blue Lightning)
I was invited to a sweat lodge while living with the Ojibwe on the shores of Lake Superior. I was honored to receive the name Blue Lightning, which was given to me by the grandfathers informing. Chief Blue Lightning was my name. Chief said many of his people wait many years for their name from the grandfathers and he was quite surprised that they had spoken to him with my name.
