Día de los Muertos
AMAZING BURIAL CEREMONIES from AROUND the WORLD: ECHOES of OUR CULTURAL IDENTITIES
This event will address the extraordinary rituals different cultures perform when they lay to rest their loved ones. In this event, we intend to illustrate some fascinating means each culture disposes the body of the deceased; from incinerating the corps, tossing it into the sea, or crushing the bones to feed the birds. Burials rituals from the perspective of different cultures are amazing. The way humankind deals with its dead says a great deal about those left to carry on. Burial practices are windows to cultures that speak volumes about it.
This is a free event!
