Description:
The author recreates here a speech he made about proper decorum at "beklug," the largest and most important Subanen sacrificial ceremony. As he stood up to speak, he followed the custom of grasping a knotted length of rattan hung from the rafters at the focal point of the gathering. The amicability and discretion toward the opposite sex he urges people to observe are key Subanen values in everyday life as well.
