panámbì

Hiligaynon

A superstitious practice of fishermen consisting in the ceremony of putting some of the "small fry" of the first catch in a tin. The tin containing the fish is then placed on a small raft and send adrift. It may be considered a kind of sacrifice to Neptune, the heathen sea-god. Also verb. Indì ka magkáon sing dánglay, parótpot ukón sápsap nga pinanambián. Don't eat dánglay-, parótpot-or sápsap-fish that have been offered to the sea-god.
