A Cultural Visit at El Museo Latino

El_Museo_Visit_1The 8th grade Spanish class visited El Museo Latino. The students had a guided tour of the museum. They were able to view silver and copper works by Ignacio Punzo and hear about the history of Latinos in Omaha from 1890 to the present time. The highlight was viewing the display on "The Day of the Dead". What a huge ofrenda (Spanish for an alter. People decorate ofrendas in their homes to honor and remember their departed.) At the end of the tour, students each got to cut paper into the popular papel picado (Spanish for "perforated paper") which is cut into elaborate designs. It was a lot harder than it looks! Special thanks to our chaperones, Mrs. Reckmeyer and Mrs. McGargil and a very special thanks to our Home and School Association. The association helped to offset the cost for each student. Thanks for your support! For more photos click here.
