Description

The Baywa in my language means whirlwind or tornado. The spirits would reveal themselves through the Baywa both on land and in the sea. These Bawa Mawal have blue eyes, they come from the sea. They bring sea food to the sorcerers who ask for them. Some information can only be told orally.
