Baqnor (move from youth)

This page describes one of the Devotopai (Rituals) of the Poku Saeruo Degonjo.

Ritual name Baqnor
Meaning move from youth
Pronounced: băkh-nor

This is a Rite of Passage that all Qaktoro undergo at the age of 16. The ritual is optional for the other Poku'vonai. However, not taking passing the ritual will affect how they are seen within the clan.

During this ritual they must pass a test from each of the Jaeli (Sects). Members of the Kavoráy Rây'ai Jael (Oath Binders Sect) oversee the tests.

  1. Test of Lore and History - (Kyn Lumu'ai Jael (Lore Keepers Sect)) The individual must pass a test involving their knowledge of Kyn'ka (History) and basic clan law.
  2. Test of Weapons - (Tavi Fua Jael (Blood Tooth Sect)) a member of this clan tests the individual's ability with Qaktoro personal weapons.
  3. Test of Proficiency - (Otâmovi Wiy Jael (Silver Moon Sect)) The individual has to pass a series of challenges involve clan tech.
  4. Test of Patience - (Veltin Usapo Jael (Swift Knife Sect)) The individual is taken to the The Preserve, once there they are given three items, a knife, a length of rope and flask of water. They must cross the The Preserve within 24 hours while tracking and killing a specified animal along with way.
  5. Test of Faith - (Detis Goa'ai Jael (Faith Walkers Sect)) The last challenge is a test of endurance.

It is a rare event for a Qaktoro to fail the Baqnor, but it does happen occasionally. A Qaktoro failing to pass the Baqnor has two choices: sterilization, or Sou Fofi (Cleansing Death). If a member of the other Poku'vonai fails the Baqnor, they will forever been seen as inferior to the Qaktoro.
