Día de los muertos is a distinctly Mexican holiday. What does it mean when people who do not belong to Mexican culture appropriate this holiday? Tracy López, for Latinaish, defines cultural appropriation as the “‘borrowing’ of one culture by another culture, particularly when elements of a minority culture are used by a majority culture.”

How do we honor the celebration and ceremony of another culture without adopting it as our own? How do we create a meaningful altar that celebrates our ancestors with respect for another’s culture? These are the subjects Lezley Troxell will delve into during this service.
