The ceremony of Warriors is one of the first. Generally, this ceremony is received together with Hand of Orunla. The ceremony of Warriors itself only lasts one day and is nothing more than giving eyebale (ritual offering of animal blood) to the newborn warriors beside the ones of the godfather. This ceremony doesn´t have Ita. The saints received in this ceremony are Eleggua, Oggun, and Ochosi. This ceremony can only be done by a Babalawo. A Santero or Ocha priest or priestess cannot give these saints.
