The bwáya (crocodile) is a creature that is synonymous with the ulimáw, bakunáwa, & serpent-dragon as seen in the school’s logo. It is considered as the embodiment of our ancestors. The bwáya is also said to control the waters. Our ancestors held great reverence toward everything in nature. As animists, everything was considered to possess a spirit or soul. Great dátu (chiefs) were thought to have descended from them. Because they were also associated with water as a source of life, it was considered taboo to harm them. The bwáya was believed to be closely related to the ulímaw (mythical serpent dragon). Special átang (food offerings) were given as a way of appeasing them so that we could live in harmony.
