This event was a really great experience for me. Having grown up in Hawaii, I was very fortunate to be able to experience a great fusion of cultures, from Hawaiian culture to Japanese culture. However, there wasn’t a huge population of Latinx people, so I knew very little of the culture. The biggest factor as to why I decided to take the Latina Cultural Production class, was to learn more. This has led to me to attend the Dia De Los Muertos event. This was the first time I experienced a Day of the Dead celebration. Whether it was my groupmates speaking their own language to the people stopping by our altar or the kids celebrating this day with their family, I witnessed the strong Latinx culture surronding Dia De Los Muertos and I am very appreciative of this opportunity to be a part of this event.
The picture above is of our altar which commemorates the children who passed while in custody of immigration.
We are group 5.
