Mariwin is very colorful ceremony as the participants paint their bodies black, wearing only green leaves and red masks. They carry sticks which they use to strike children that have misbehaved recently. The men wearing the red masks represent ancestral spirits rather than human beings and do not talk. Instead, they make eerie sounds that frighten the children.
