The Las Positas Puente Club hosted the Dia De Los Muertos event on Nov. 1 in the quad. Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead is a celebration observed on Nov. 1 and Nov. 2 throughout Mexico and by many other Latin cultures worldwide. The multi-day holiday involves family and friends gathering to pay respects and to remember those who have died. 

The Puente Club encourages higher education for Latinos and other persons of color on campus. The club provides resources and support for students to reach their educational goals, according to Puente Club Vice President Jelani Moreno.

The event featured traditional games and music. There were also booths for making masks and pinatas and a face painting booth. The event also featured Aztec dancers in full ceremonial costumes. The dancers blessed the ground and the heavens as a way of showing love to relatives and friends that have died. 

“I love that everyone is here watching. It makes me really happy to share my culture,” Moreno said.
