Learn about the Zapotec community of Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico, and their traditional celebration of Día de los Muertos.

Since pre-Hispanic times, death has played a fundamental role in Zapotec life. The traditional celebration of Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, in the Zapotec community of Teotitlán del Valle, Oaxaca, Mexico focuses on the importance of family and extended family relations. The celebration includes family-based observances and altars, and continues with a community-wide ritual remembrance in the cemetery.

Presented in partnership with Metamorfosis Documentation Project, a non-profit organization documenting and supporting cross-cultural rituals and dances in the Americas through collaborative projects with mestizo and indigenous communities, in order to preserve these traditions within the communities and share them with a wider audience.
