The fixed day, the ceremony starts: the death is lying in its coffin, placed on a small building with two levels, surrounded by rare fabric standards. One then carries to him tepid rice, palm wine, nut of betel and cigarettes with cloves. At daybreak, the sacrifice of one buffalo starts; at this time, the sick leaves the terrestrial life and his soul to join these ancestors. One sacrifices sometimes until a hundred buffaloes, then they are cut up and the guests are entitled to a piece of meat.
