The Ruru or Morepork owl is very strongly associated with the spirit world in Maori mythology. 
The ancestral spirit of a family is thought to sometimes take the form of the Ruru. This spirit is known as Hine-ruru, the 'owl woman' and is believed to act as kaitiaki or guardians having the power to protect, warn and advise.
