Anite On the Mariana Islands there is a belief that the spirits of departed men (Anites) are certain beings that plague those who are left; therefore flowerpots are placed beside the dead body, and the spirit is prayed to settle down on them. Others seek to keep the spirit away by fasting, because they know how to plague men in dreams.
