An interesting question. I think that unless one feels a very serious disjunction from their Earthly body (e.g., are a very recent walk-in) and/or for whatever reason feel no connection to Earth whatsoever, even as a temporary "hostess", one's bodily ancestors should be honoured as well as non-human ones. We are the "past" manifesting itself, and IMO no part of that past is less important than any other. The ancestors live through us; we are the manifestation of the threads of Fate, as our descendents will be for us.
