An otonan is held every 210 days following the birth of a baby and is considered a most important rite of passage. It can be likened to a birthday and is celebrated with elaborate offerings, prayer and often a feast for close friends and relatives. The fundamental purpose of an otonan is to purify and convey spiritual strength.
