(…) The Ñatitas festivity is a traditional rite in Bolivia, celebrated every November 8, to thank the dead for their favors and care granted to the people.  It entails worshipping one or several human skulls.

The rite is said to date from pre-Columbian times, when the dead were worshipped and carried on shoulders so that they would meet with their ajayus (Aymara word that means «ghost», «soul» o «spirit») and their families. It is also believed that this cult comes from the ancient Tiwanaku empire, when ancestors’ heads were kept to demand rain in times of drought or to chase away storms, so that these would not destroy houses or crops(…)
