Abstract:The following account is a record of a wedding ceremony complex, commonly called "chono," a generic term for all the major wedding feasts, but more specifically termed "Fayas," the term for the culminating wedding feasts in which carabaos are killed for the main sacrifices. "Fayas" takes its name from the sugar cane wine (elsewhere in Mountain Province termed "basi") which is consumed in large quantities during the various ceremonies. Notes for this paper were gathered during the "Fayas" which took place in Guinaang, Bontoc, Mountoc Province in the Philippines, during September and October, 1960.
