The old church was damaged in an earthquake. The people could not understand why their god would destroy the church. So they turned it into a graveyard.
They build a new church a short distance away.
The men in the sheep skin ponchos are Donas. They volunteer for one year to take care of one of the "saints' that line the inside of the church. These "saints" look like Christian saints, but represent Mayan gods.
