Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Day of the Dead celebration: Honoring Our Ancestors (DICE)


Time: Friday, November 2, 2018 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Location: Multicultural Center, Alonso Family Room

Join Latinx Student Initiatives for a presentation about Día de Muertos (Day of the dead) a traditional Latin American holiday, where communities honor and celebrate the lives of family and friends who have gone before them. Each community have a unique Día de Muertos traditions. However, the common beliefs of the two-day celebration—traditionally held November 1 and 2, and coinciding with the Christian All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day—are that the dead return home, visit loved ones, and feast on their favorite foods. At this workshop, you will learn about the indigenous traditions across the Americas and will work on a “calavera” (traditional poetry during Dia de Muertos). Connect with your inner writer and honor your family traditions and cultural practices.

This event also counts for 1 DICE Credit toward your DICE Certificate. More information about DICE and how to earn credits can be found here:
