uy-uyna traditional prestige ritual and celebrationThis refers to an Ifugao prestige ritual feast for all and performed by an Ifugao well-to-do family based on culture and tradition. A complicated form of rituals is usually under the control and supervision of shamans. The celebration can last for weeks. A minimum of five big male pigs and jars of rice wine and ritual blankets are required for this ritual feast but more pigs and chickens are butchered as sacrificial offerings as the rituals progress from day to day with days and nights of traditional religious prayers and chants along with ritual gongs and dances. The climax is on the third day when all five pigs are butchered at the same time by piercing their hearts with sharp wooden sticks; they all squeal at the same time until they are dead. Food with cooked meat and rice wine is served free for all. Gongs and dances are performed every day and night for public participation.Limmaw kamid Nepayew eman ni nenguy-uyan di Cabbigat nan Bugan ni nunman la.We went to Nepayew during the prestige ritual feast performed by Cabbigat and Bugan a long time ago.whgepah 1Simhelyatkelenggengetadmeng-uy-uy
