Día de los Muertos is a melding of traditions, Catholic and indigenous. Mexico’s indigenous people preserved their traditions within the accepted practices of the colonial authority, sustaining them through the generations. What has been preserved across time is the message that death is a part of life and the dead live on through our rituals of remembrance.
