text: (192) When a man kills game they take a small part of the meat and some of the hair and throw into the jungle for Ghawang and say: "Ghawang, in the future give like this". When they cook the meat then in their houses they throw small parts of the cooked meat to the house post and say the same again. They say the same words when they catch fish.
