*Owl gives his battle screech; We return with our battle cries and at this point the Chit gets real........
Suddenly your name becomes somewhat ironic.

Owls are powerful spirits. The Native Americans say that owl feathers should be left to lay unless you have powerful medicine. I imagine stuffing an injured owl into a paper bag might be misinterpreted as a "Punking" by the Great Spirit!

IIRC, to the Native American Indians, the owl was the harbinger of death. that seeing an owl was the sign that someone was going die.

There is a native American member here. Can't remember his name though. RedDeer or something like that? It would be nice to hear what he has to say (and if we white-eyes are way off base!)
