|Ritual name||Sumanâpa Punla|
Sumanâpa Punla is the marriage ritual for the Poku'vonai. Prior to the ritual the members all perform the Oma fofipa (Making self clean). The Kyn Lumu'ai Jael (Lore Keepers Sect) start by providing a statement on the family, and the individuals to be married. This includes a brief statement about their heritage, and their personal accomplishments.
The individuals to be married then exchange a gift of daggers, which signify that from this point forward they protect each other.
Next the Detis Goa'ai Jael (Faith Walkers Sect) begin the actual ceremony. They ask for the blessings of Siamaka upon the union. The individuals can either use traditional vows, or request to make their own. At the end of the ritual the Detis Goa'ai Jael (Faith Walkers Sect) bind the members hands loosely with a lapurnium (sash) in the family colors. The members hold their bound hands up to show to those present that they are not one family.
