View Full Version : Iso Hauka

Seeing June's posting about Rida, Rida, Ranka reminded me of something my mother would do to us kids growing up.

Using her hand and holding it up high, she would say "Iso hauka, dule giva gava, giva gava....." and then tickle us.

All I remember is it was supposed to be something about a big, black crow coming to get us. I'd do it to my kids when they were little and even my brothers would do it to their kids to make them laugh.

Sorry for butchering the spelling but it's spelled phonetically. Has anyone else ever heard of it? Or do I just come from a weird family? ;)
