Usiba Lwe Nyoni
Native to Africa, the Ostrich has inspired cultures and civilizations for over 5000 years. In Ancient Egypt, the Ostrich had great spiritual and religious significance.
Ostrich feathers were associated with the deity of truth and justice, the lightness of the feather being a symbol of truth. The Kung bushmen of Africa revered the Ostrich, and imbued it with powers when they performed ritual dances. Indigenous people of the Kalahari still use Ostrich eggs as water jugs.
