||Intangible Cultural Property
The Nabil-eup-ri Village Festival is a village-level rite held to pray for peace in the village by offering sacrifices to the measles god, the village guardian, and the guest god Poshin. The ritual was held in spring and autumn every year and has been held only in spring since more than 30 years ago.
The rite begins with a total abolition of the offering to the sacrificial table. The rite is held in the order of the iron ferns, incense vessels, and memorial tablets, and the Confucian ritual method. After the ritual, the priests and participants catch the pig they used as a sacrifice and share it with them.
The Nabil-eup-ri Village Festival is characterized by the combination of Poje, a Confucian village ritual performed by men, and Danggut, a shamanistic village ritual performed by women.
