The National Girls Collaborative Project is partnering with the Smithsonian Latino Center to celebrate Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).

Día de los Muertos is a day of celebration for the people of Latin America, particularly in Mexico and Central America, and more recently for Mexican Americans. Rather than grieve over the loss of a beloved family or friend, those who celebrate Día de los Muertos choose to commemorate the lives of the dearly departed and welcome the return of their spirits.

Join NGCP and the Smithsonian Latino Center (SLC) to learn about different aspects of this holiday, how to use the SLC transmedia resources in your classroom or learning environment, and create your own collections! You’ll also hear from educators and experts about instructive practices and traditional festivities. Featured writer and scholar Xanath Caraza will even be reciting her new poem honoring Mictecacíhuatl/La Catrina.

Generous support for this program provided by Target, an education sponsor of the Smithsonian Latino Center digital outreach.
