Creating the Ofrenda

In this image, we can see Paloma (right), and Kelly (left), working together to put candles on the ofrenda. This was only one tiny part in the process of making our ofrenda, which was made in honor of Madre Tierra, Mother Earth. The candles represented fire, and we chose to put the pink colored candles in the front so they could match the pink flowers that were lying beside them. Setting up the ofrenda was an experience that allowed us to connect with one another. We have not spent lots of time together in person, as class has been online, but being able to come together to create an altar felt very rewarding. Our group was flexible, supportive, kind, and eager to have outside conversations with each other.
