Through song, dance and ceremony, Día de Los Muertos—Day of the Dead, celebrates the reaffirmation of Indigenous life and traditions. Those who celebrate, pay special tribute and homage to family, friends and loved ones who have taken their journey to the spirit world. In today’s modern times, Dia de Los Muertos is celebrated on November 1 & 2 throughout the vast territory of Abya Yala (Mexico, Central, and South America). On Turtle Island (North America), the celebration begins on October 31 and continues through November 2.
Dakhóta’s beautifully haunting debut recording of the culturally iconic song La Llorona (English: Weeping Woman), celebrates El Día de Los Muertos and is dedicated to her Grandmother, Ida Mae Aragon aka Rita Rogers.
