Native peoples in the Americas had various names for July’s full moon; the names reflect that in the Northern Hemisphere it is summer. “Traditionally, the full moon in July is called the Buck Moon because a buck’s antlers are in full growth mode at this time,” “This full moon was also known as the Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.” The name “Thunder Moon” was adapted from native peoples of the eastern United States, where summer is thunderstorm season.
The Māori of New Zealand use a lunar calendar called the maramataka which measured months between successive new moons. The June-to-July lunar month (which this year spans the new moons from June 21 to July 20) is called Hōngongoi, or “man is now extremely cold and kindles fires before which he basks,” according to the Encyclopedia of New Zealand. This lunar month was, to the Māori, the second month of the year.
