Testimonials for the Ancestors

Subject

Ancestors

Description

For many cultures, death has always been felt with such finality. There are those, however, that have maintained a reverence and veneration for those that came before them. Raíces is seeking video testimonials from individuals of diverse cultural backgrounds to speak about the traditions celebrating the ancestors in their culture on an ongoing basis to add to this collection. These videos serve the purpose of documenting and preserving a history of cultural traditions devoted to the veneration and celebration of the ancestors and will continue to be shared with the public on the Raíces Roots Online Archive.
