dc.description.abstractDanil and Sergei say that they perform the ritual of gal tyalgn when someone in their family sees a dream in which their ancestors request this ritual. For the ritual, they slaughter a sheep and put certain offerings on a fire, including the sacrificial sheep’s head (with its tongue and jaw removed) and its legs, biscuits, candies and milk. The meat of the sheep is shared among the participants. Sheep bones left from the feast are burnt on the fire. The ritual is directed by the elder of their clan.
