Ancient Mesoamerican cultures understand bones as being the material of life and were considered capable of manifesting regeneration and rebirth. Festivals dedicated to the god Huitzilopochtli involved bread baked into the form of long bones that were set at the feet of his statue; those were sanctified and later broken up and consumed by people seeking restoration and healing.
