The Gugu ‘Owl’ is a bird that islanders admire due to its facial traits, its abilities to see and hunt in the night skies. The fact that the Owls eyes are at similar position to our human eyes on our face, this bring to the owls demina through its eyes, we feel the presents our ancestors who would from time to time, look back into our lives to check on our honesty. We believe as a people in our ‘one commandment’ WE SAY “Mariw Dunaka” – We are always in check to the eyes of our spiritual ancestors.
