Puerto Rican spiritual practice, or "Mesa Blanca", is rooted in the social ideas that aimed to give a voice to the diverse groups that made up our ethnic identity. This talk will explore how the day of the dead celebration in the Island renews those values and serves as a cognitive map to negotiate issues of race and color as understood by devotees.
