A Giant from the myths of the Lakota Sioux Native Americans. It name originates from the words ‘wa’, ‘zi’ and ‘ya’ which means ‘snow, ‘green’ and ‘doing something with the mouth’. He is covered in fine fir and is the keeper of a sacred ceremonial dance which he does through the night sky of the Northern Lights. During the Summer he lives in the far north and travels south during the Winter. When he arrives he brings strong winds, frost and blizzards.
