The word apü³ means ‘taboo’ and refers to things like incest, sheawa, or marrying a person from an enemy village. Other taboo matters include working on the day after a festival, such as the festival in January samwanro, when a chicken is killed for the end of harvesting; the next day farming should not be practiced. Similarly in April, after tamyang pha, the completion of slashing and burning, a sacrifice is done and again on the next day there should be not work, that day is apü. On such days guests are not welcomed in the house. Also, if a shaman suggests a sacrifice be done, such as if a dog is to be sacrificed and its head put on a berong post; once again on the day after that sacrifice, that day is apü. The word tiiriipü ‘make them separate’ and riipü ‘be separated’ are derived from this word.
