Dia De Los Muertos Virtual Altar Exhibit
Hello Foothill College. Please join us this quarter during Native American Heritage Month (NAHM) for a virtual exhibit of Dia De Los Muertos Altares by our community. Typically altars are physical places of ceremonies and traditions. However under the current conditions of social distancing we have a rare opportunity to share our altares virtually. We're asking you to be vulnerable and respectful as you share and view your peers altares.
Please create a physical altar and take a picture and write 4-5 sentences (or more) about the person you are remembering. Or, create a virtual altar by uploading images of the person you are remembering and write 4-5 sentences about the person you are remembering. You may share an altar of a family member, friend, or pet. Please use your creative freedom to honor their memory and legacy. No person's life is too small or too big to be remembered.
