A tradition that stems from the cultural amalgamation of European traditions and Mesoamerican Native traditions, la celebración de Día de los Muertos is a celebration where the living come to spend time with the memory of their deceased loved ones. Universally, individuals and groups share in the culture of honoring their dead. Día de los Muertos is part of that cultural web known through out as “honoring the dead”. On Saturday, November 1, 2014, El Colegio High School would like to extend a welcome invitation to the public to attend the 15th Annual Día de los Muertos Celebración, presenting ofrendas (small alters) made by school and community members honoring the lives and deaths of Gabriel García Márquez, Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, Michael Brown and several others.
