Hai Piao Xiao - The high pow wow
The high pow wow is the highest in all the lands. To enter it the men must retain their essence for years to build up to scary testosterone levels. Then the pow wow begins with a fight between the warriors who are allowed to release their acidity towards each other with a painful brawl. After the bleeding stops they have a sweat lodge to resolve dampness and promote healing between the tribes.

The high pow wow causes some sleepless nights (cc: yin deficiency with heat) for participants.
