Viejas, and Barona, have a church event called the May
Crowning. This is where a young lady places a crown on flowers on the head
of a statue of the Virgin Mary. This may all lead back to the traditional
belief in Sin-MuHow, who also gave virgin birth, but no one really knows.
In years past this was a big event and a huge crowd would show up. Now it
is much smaller and not as formal as it used to be.
