DZUNUKWA SPIRIT

Dzunukwa is the kwakwaka ‘wakw name for the wild woman of the woods.  She is a giant spiritually powerful spirit who can resurrect the dead and manifest lightning with her supernaturally loud voice. Dzunukwa guards and protects her children, who are all creatures and spirits of the forest.  Human children who wander are likely to be captured by her and thrown into a basket on her back.
