  Knock knock! Who's there?
by Grazina

From birth to old age, the hogan provides the setting for all stages of life except dying. In the past when death threatened, relatives moved the sick to a temporanry shelter outside the dwelling. Now they use the hospital. If a death did occur inside the hogan, expecially when a life had been cut short, the family removed the body through a large opening in the wall. Then they abandoned the dwelling or destroyed it with fire. This hogan is about 100 years old.
