It is called vintana but owes its origin to the Malay word bintana and the migration of Malay ideas and people to Madagascar, as opposed to the Arab imported sikidy. The consequent confusion of these practices with the divinatory geomancy of sikidy is a conspicuously false trail which is immediately highlighted by conversation with practitioners of either art.
