Día de los Muertos 2008

A traditional Latin American custom is to build a Day of the Dead altar for All Saints Day. Rachel Wenzel has produced this story on a Day of the Dead altar built in the New Orleans Cabildo, once the local seat of government during Spanish colonial rule. This feature was made possible with support from the Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the Center for Public Service at Tulane, and with cooperation from the Cabildo & Louisiana State Museum. This podcast was written and produced by Rachel Wenzel, Tulane University ’09 in Fall 2008.
