As a group, we put the final touches on our altar, focusing on the aspect of Selena’s most memorable accents. We placed flowers, sage, candles, and la calavera on the first level of our altar, representing the underworld. While the second level, earth, we placed water, bread, lip gloss, and a picture of Selena. On the last level, heaven, we placed a rosary in remembrance of Selena and her spirit coming back.

We began the ceremony, walked around and saw other altars. Once we walked around we went down to the basement to enjoy some mole con pollo. The group in the picture is the Latina Cultural Production class from the University of Washington, discussing the importance, liveliness, beauty, and togetherness that today, El Dia De Los Muertos has brought.
