Join us for an event celebrating beautiful and powerful student art. We are also pleased to welcome José González for a talk at 2 p.m. Guests are encouraged to print a poem or another contribution to the altar. 

Indigenous culture in Mexico and other parts of Latin America conceive death in a dialectical way, as part of life, and represented artistically in many cultural productions. In this altar, we have tried to incorporate the artistic, to the spiritual and the journalistic criticism sides of the celebration with art work from students and University community members. José González, a Mixteco indigenous migrant from the state of Oaxaca, and member of Frente Indígena de Organizaciones Binacionales (Indigenous Front of Binational Organizations), will share with us the spiritual traditions of his elders and will give an explanation about the meaning of different objects in the altar.
