"The Love Beads Ritual"

The Maga'saina orders the Lhi to remove his Love Beads or Bangat Guinaiya. He turns to the Palo'an and installs the Love Beads or Bangat Guinaiya on the Palo'an's right wrist. This is the universal sign that the Palo'an and the Lhi are now spoken for. The Ancient Chamori term for this ritual is "maapengga".

The ancient people of Guahan or Taotaomo'nas believed in the sacred and heavenly union between a woman and a man. They called the Ancient Chamori Royal Wedding Ceremony "Hacha'gua", which means to be ONE or to become ONE.
As one of the only surviving matriarchal societies in the world, the Taotao Tano' of Guahan capture the true meaning and symbolism of ancient class royalty and womanhood in the perpetuation of their unique wedding system..."Hacha'gua"
