Big Owl is a malicious and dangerous giant often used as a "bogeyman" in children's stories.
In some Apache tribes, Big Owl also plays a more important mythological role as an early adversary of
the War Twins. Like other legendary Apache beings, Big Owl is sometimes described as having human
form (in this case a man-eating ogre) and other times animal form (in this case a
horned owl large enough to carry off a child.)
