noun · Kankana-ey

Takba is a container made of flexible material specifically rattan with an opening at the top, used for rituals like "begnas". Also, this takba should be properly and regularly maintained by offering prayers and feeding it for there will be consequences if you don't.

note: Please correct me for if there are terms or words that are wrong or were been used to misrepresent the word that is being defined. Please feel free to add some ideas.
