The University of La Verne's celebrates Native American Awareness month through the end of November. "Day of the Dead," a popular term of All Souls Day, was observed last Tuesday, Nov. 2, in the Quad to celebrate Mass in honor of dead relatives. It is also the day to set up home altars with food and other items that were pleasing to them. This celebration is still observed throughout Latin America on the Christian Day of All Souls. Many believe that the dead are not the object of fear, but are instead friendly ancestors who can sweeten the life of the living.
