No:ia is the process of starting a new year by turning over the old ashes. It becomes the time of renewal and commitment to uphold the ceremonies.
The children of the community also look forward to No:ia. It is celebrated on January 1st each year (New Year's Day). Children go door to door and yell "No:ia". Residents in the home treat the children to freshly baked goods (doughnuts and cookies), fruit, nuts and candies.
Tradition has been that children are allowed to go No:ia-ing only until noon on January 1st.
