Weder Pierre (2-nd L), little brother of the deceased Germanie Pierre, drives a motorcycle in the procession of family and friends heading to the cemetery for a final goodbye to the deceased, in Gonaives, Haiti, June 12, 2021. Despite the country's poverty, funerals are often extravagant social events in Haiti, complete with a festive wake and fanfare bands. Haiti's death rites are viewed as important to guarantee a safe passage to the afterworld – with cremations and organ donations rare because the deceased are deemed still to need their bodies - but also a way to mark one's social standing.
