Sugar skulls, grave site decorating, parades, all night long vigils, and many ceremonies are all part of festivities that take place on thus (this) special day.
Dia de los Muertos is a Mexican “ memorial day” that celebrates the lives of those who have passed. As a beautiful honor to this day, Mr. Garcia’s Spanish class, was given the task of making a little altar for either a family member or celebrity. Shadow boxes were made with pictures and decorations to represent the person; also posters with a background story were created. To show all the beautiful projects and honor each chosen person, a memorial was set up at the library displaying the student’s hard work. Besides our school, our community was ready to celebrate and honor this day as well.
The El Camino Real de los Tejas served as a lifeline for Spanish Missions. It moved men and equipment rapidly, and brought them much needed supplies. It also served as a communication line, and supported trade, supplies, and military protection. In a similar way, this pathway contributed to Texas independence. It gave troops and armies supplies that were needed, and enabled communication.
El Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), a Mexican celebration, is a day to celebrate, remember and prepare special foods in honor of those who have departed.

In order to celebrate, the families make altars and place ofrendas of food such as pan de muertos baked in shapes of skulls and figures, candles, incense, yellow marigolds known as cempazuchitl (also spelled zempasuchil) and most importantly a photo of the departed soul are placed on the altar.
Chapter two is called "Madre, Mujer, Bruja" which means mother, women, and witch in Spanish. The name of the chapter set up with what Ms. Glass-Coffin talks about in this chapter. She looks at how the history of healings and rituals and how it has contributed to the contemporary perception of what healers do. When situations like the story of Maria de la O and her daughter Manuela the church would become involved and they would put these perceptions of witchcraft on the women. In contemporary times shamanic healers are mostly men, this is because the churches ideologies which were European made their way to Peru.
Bernal Diaz del Castillo Bernal Diaz was born in 1492 or 1498 to Maria Diaz Rejón and Francisco Diaz del Castillo, a regidor (council member) of the town of Medina del Campo, in Castilla y León. The family was distinguished but not wealthy. In 1514, Bernal went to seek his fortune in America with Pedrarias Dávila (Pedro Árias de Ávila), Bishop Fonseca's newly appointed governor of Castilla del Oro. A cruel and unscrupulous schemer, Pedrarias excelled at extorting riches by torturing native rulers, looting gems and gold from their graves, and eliminating potential rivals. (Pedrarias had his prospective son-in-law Balboa and four companions beheaded on trumped-up charges in 1519.)
