Every ritual celebration honors Achachillas or Mallkus (Lord or governor) and T'alla (Lady). They are appealed to them in times of crisis or need.
Specific and solemn Aymara cults take place in February: Godfather Days, when people climb to the hill and raise a pole called Arco which is dressed as a herdsman to represent the spirit.
Arco means new life after death; as well the seed, which falls in the soil, dies and produces new life.
This celebration takes place in houses, yards and corrals. The Aymara role is that of is celebrant, sacrificer or supplicant, however in religious festivities he is only a supplicant.
The wizard called Laika is the celebrant of rituals. The night is his domain, as well as caves, mines and inaccessible rock formations.
