    The Feast of the Dead is an ancient ritual dating back from the 1600's. The Wyandot people see this as a time for mourning and celebration.
    As whole villages moved to a new location, they would arrange mass reburials of their dead, who were transported to the new location.

    The Wyandot people would take dead bodies out of their first graves and clean the remains in preparation for reburial in a new location.

    The Feast of the Dead takes place over a period of days. They gather and prepare the bodies for the reburial, flesh and skin are removed from the corpses and the bones are individually cleaned. There is a time for public mourning, then the bodies were lowered into a pit with three kettles, which help the souls reach the afterlife.
    If a bundle fell, it was time for everything else (bundles, gifts, corn, wooden stakes and sand) to be thrown in as well. As the pit was filled and covered over, the crowds screamed and sang.

    The following and final morning consisted of gift giving among the living; it was a time for celebration. Those who had made the journey were thanked, and ties were reaffirmed.
    Feast of the dead is a haunting ceremonial blend of spicy cinnamon offerings, freshly turned dirt, cedar coffins and an enchanting medley of sacred spices and musk.
