At once solo and communal, death, dying, mourning and honoring are part of the circle of life. What makes this universal experience unique are the cultural practices, values, and beliefs that communities and families hold. These include practices, traditions, adages and rituals that address end-of-life planning and preparation, loss, grief and how we memorialize those who have passed on. Looking closely at them can help us understand both ourselves and one another, and bring dignity to an event we will all, at some point, experience. This exhibit is developed and presented in partnership with Southwest Folklife Alliance.
