Dancing for the dead
Día de los Muertos, the massive Mexican festival on Nov. 2, honours the beloved deceased with fabulous food and dance. A T.O. Aztec dancer and a Mexican folk dancer show us how to party.
The Mexican way! Honouring my deceased loved ones, greeting them at the altar with offerings of special food and things that they enjoyed when they were alive. I will be tending to my altar at home, as taught by my grandmother. Also, I will be participating in a number of events as an Aztec dancer. My grandparents, my grand-aunties, granduncles, friends, some elders who were my teachers, people who are no longer here but left a special place in my heart.
