WEEK 14, Part C, WHITE OWL



White Owl at the Abundance of Rivers.
.
Was the person shown in the pictograph really called “White owl?”
.
 Perhaps the original Historian meant something else.
.
Let us check.
.
The original sounds recorded by the Moravian priests in AD 1831 were “wapagokhos.”
.
Look up “Wapa” in the VIKING and the REDMAN.  
[Hint, the best page is in Vol. 5, general vocabulary.]
.
What does "WAPA" mean?
.
The LENAPE named birds and animals by the sounds they made.
.
Do you think “go-khos” sounds like an owl?
.
Do you think the name is for a bird?
.
Or do you think the name describes a man with the attributes of the bird?
.
 If so, what are some attributes the man might have had?
