I’m adding this new National Geographic video to The Best Sites For International Day Of The World’s Indigenous People.

Here’s how they describe it:

Visit the colorful cemetery of Chichicastenango, Guatemala, where every year families repaint the graves of their departed loved ones. To outsiders, the passionate display of color may seem incongruent with loss of life—but according to indigenous Maya tradition, honoring the dead encourages the living to make peace with the inevitability of death.
