Additional Details:
This Mojave ceremonial is for the purpose of assisting the soul of the departed through the Indian Maze and safely into the Great Beyond. Upon the death of a member of the tribe, the body, together with all of its earthly belongings, is placed on the pyre and burned - while relatives and friends for miles around are gathered to weep and to chant prayers for the departed soul
