Among the Dayaks of Borneo, the trivah, or feast of the
dead, was celebrated after a death had taken place. A panel
containing a representation of the tempon-teloris (ship of the
dead) was generally set up at the trivah, and sacrifices of fowls
were offered to it. It was believed that until the trivah had been
celebrated, the souls were unable to reach the golden shores.
