Community Conversation: Day of the Dead and Cultur...

Presented by History Fort Lauderdale at Fort Lauderdale Historical Society

Join the Consul General of Mexico and Curator of Exhibitions at the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society in a discussion of history and cultural heritage of Dias de los Muertos in Mexico. As part of this year’s conversation, a very special artifact from the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society collection will be accepted by the Consul General on behalf of the National Institute of Anthropology and History, returning this artifact to the people of Mexico whose ancestors fabricated the artifact in the Huastec region over 800 years ago. This event is a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness a rare international artifact repatriation. RSVP early, space is limited. VIP tickets by invitation only.
