Join Karen and Iván as they participate in the first annual CDMX Mexico City's 2016 Día de Muertos parade as the streets come alive with color, spectacular costumes, masks, floats, and flowers. Delve into myths, rituals, and legends like la Llorona on an evening cruise in a trajinera through Xochimilco canals. Visit a traditional market before making pan de muerto and calaveras de azúcar in Ocotepec, Morelos. Walk the streets and experience the extravagant altares built to honor local loved ones, and meet the people who created them. Karen and Iván invite us to discover the culture and traditions surrounding the Day of the Dead in their homeland of Mexico. They inspire us to understand the holiday’s history and embrace the importance it continues to hold for those honoring loved ones who have passed on. Truly an unforgettable experience!

Staff's Response: We appreciate you sharing your observation of the new video. This version of the Dia de los Muertos was filmed for Canal Once, a public television station in Mexico City, and is an authentic experience of the holiday. Our goal is to offer an authentic resource for those teachers who have requested it, while continuing to provide the option of the original Teacher's Discovery video for teachers like you, who prefer that approach. We are delighted to hear that you have enjoyed the original video and we hope that you continue to use it in your classroom. There will be a revised activity packet available this fall.
