"Day of the Dead" in Chiapas
Center for Global Justice is planning a "Day of the Dead" adventure to Chiapas this fall. From October 29th to November 5th, a group of no more than 10 will experience the blend of indigenous and catholic ritual that entwines in this regions honoring of those that have passed. It's a very memorable few days filled with incredible beauty and traditions unique to the region.
From our base in San Cristobal de las Casas, a town of European flavor, the group will also visit several indigenous communities, each with its own language, dress and customs. In this state of geographically and historically distinct communities, there are some 11 different languages spoken. And of great importance, this is the area that gave birth to and continues to nurture the Zapatista's, a movement that inspires many in the reality that another world is not only possible, but is being practiced successfully in everyday life, here in Chiapas.
The Center's Chiapas trips have been very popular. The small group size, wonderful local bilingual guide and progressive educational itinerary insure a trip that will be enriching.
Contact Olivia at the Center office (admin@globaljusticecenter) if you are interested in participating in this delegation: Oct 29 - Nov 5th. We'll email the detailed itinerary and pricing to you.
