Ancient Chamori Funeral Rite

The ancient people of Guahan also practiced a third kind of funeral ritual, known as Sinilu'Acho'. This burial was never spoken about since it was TABOO and reserved specifically for the ManAchangs "low caste" or slaves and the Taotao Nano' or dwarfs, elves or duendes. There were no ceremonial prayers, chants or rituals associated with this burial. Evidence of this burial were uncovered when human remains were found inside a cave in Tinian and Guahan.
