Wido Ttibaennori(ritual) - National Intangible Cultural Property No. 82-3 +
||Intangible Cultural Properties / Ceremonies / Ceremonies of Civil Faith
Wido Ttibaennori is held in early January every year in Daeri Village, Wido-myeon, Buan-gun, Jeollabuk-do to pray for the peace of the village and for a bountiful catch. The name Ttibaennori stems from the practice of letting a boat made of tti (Imperata cylindrica) sail out to sea as part of the ritual. The event is also called Wondangje, as it is performed at Wondang, a shrine set up for the ritual.
The boat is made of tti, straw, and bush clover spliced together. It is usually sized 3m (L) by 2m (W). People put sacrificial offerings and seven puppets into the boat.
The event is a local festival in which people sing, dance, and drink together, praying for a bountiful catch and for the safety of fishermen. ☆
