On a street in Port au Prince, during the Day of the Dead a man walks among the crowds with a scull on his head. Ghede is Death.  He is smiling, affable, loves to party, he is often called BARON SAMEDI. In this aspect he is DEATH. Ghede is a clown, an interrupter, a coarse fellow. But he is history too. As keeper of the cemetery he has intimate contact with the dead. He knows what their plans were, what's going on in families, what the connections of things are. And he is quite generous with his information. Even when he is clowning or performing his erotic antics, if you can pull him aside and ask him a serious question you will get a serious and reliable answer.
