Celebrating Haiti: Day of the Dead Revisited

Series Site

"In Haitian culture, “Fetes des morts” is a time for honoring the ancestors with offerings of food and music. Not unlike Halloween, this holiday originates in the indigenous religion of “Vodou.” In most Western societies, “Vodou” is misunderstood and typically seen in a negative light; in actuality, it is a celebration of the history, religion and people of Haiti." -Metrograph
