Our Goal

We are a group of individuals and organizations whose aim is to bring the Evansville community together around the holiday of "El Dia de los Muertos," or the Mexican "Day of the Dead." In doing so, we provide our participants the opportunity to share memories of departed loved ones, to appreciate the traditions of our neighboring Latino cultures, to enjoy one another's company, and to create grass root artistic expressions of remembrance, anchored in folk traditions that can be traced back to Spanish and Aztec culture. With its monumental earthworks, Angel Mounds is the perfect venue for our celebration, evoking memories of  the holiday's Precolumbian roots.
