When someone dies in Mestizo culture, they go to the church, sometimes celebrate mass in honor of the deceased, and visit the cemetery to clean and put flowers.
In some Indigenous cultures in the Andes, death is celebrated differently. The house prepares the deceased person’s favorite meal, and then with much reverence, the family proceeds to the cemetery. If possible, they celebrate mass before the cemetery. At the graveyard, the family cleans the grave and then gathers to eat the special meal, placing food on the deceased’s tomb as well.
