 Tladi- ‘Lightning Bird’

TLADI, or Lightning bird/s, are believed to be a the symbol of capturing rain, as well as the physical source of regeneration, they are the symbol of spiritual fertitlity and a sign that nature and society are in harmony or NOT.

Rain makers/diviners, will call TLADI to evoke different forces through the events of dances and songs, mimicking TLADI’s distinguishing beauty, strength and fragility.

TLADI, is a word from the NTWANA people of South Africa, originating in Western Sotho’s ‘The Batswana’ clan/tribe.
