Dia De Los Muertos Photos 2009

On Friday October 30th, the annual celebration of Dia de los muertos took place on campus beginning with the dedication of altars. The altars were located in Scott Hall, Appleby Hall and La Raza Cultural Student Center. Each of them were built by current Casa Sol students, Chicano Studies classes, and members of La Raza according to this year's theme of "Body Counts." Each group took an approach to interpreting the theme and choreographed their altar accordingly to honor those past and present Mexican-Americans who have sacrificed themselves and their bodies throughout history in various ways. After the procession and dedication, the dancers from Kalpulli KetzalCoatlicue performed outside Coffman Memorial Union. After the performance, students and observers enjoyed tamales and pan de muerto in La Raza. The event was a huge success and we had a great turn out this year. Thanks to all who participated and contributed to this year's event and hope to see you all next year!
