The re-newer of power, this thunder was known to help those Anishinaabek who were in need of strength from sickness, grief and many other illnesses. It was the role of the Djasakid (conjuror) who would call upon the spirits of animals in a shaking tent ceremony to help those that needed help. These spirits would turn into human form while in the shaking tent lodge. This power of transformation was not uncommon in spirits.
