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 its eyes are at similar position to our human eyes, this bring to the owls demina through its eye the presents our ancestors who would from time to time look back into our lives to check our honesty.

We believe as a people in our one commandments “Mariw Dunaka” – We are always in the eyes of our spiritual ancestors.
