The spirit of a dead person must return to his village of origin.  If a person died on a journey, the family would go to the place of death and accompany the deceased back home by walking them back to the village. In the past, people were frightened to journey far, in case they died while they were away and were unable to return to their village.

It look like a horror movie as they are dug up every year to be washed and dressed up in new clothes.  After the dug up the dead bodies are dragged from where they died back to the village, always following a path of straight lines.
