The Thunderbird Strike series depicts stories of about impending pipelines. The series opens with “The Snake That Swallows Us Whole” that portrays a geographically accurate map of the proposed pipelines that stretch from the tar sands in Alberta to across the Great Lakes, forming the shape of a snake with fangs that jet into the ground, constantly consuming. It uplifts with “They Are Answering” that shows a thunderbird channeling through the sky with lightning wiring from its eyes as it answers the prayers of communities. “Rip Off Its Head” portrays a thunderbird serenely soaring as it explodes the source of pipelines, recognizing that the best way to kill a snake is to tear off the head.
