The Coconino Hispanic Advisory Council (C.H.A.C.) was established in 2001 by the Board of Supervisors to provide an official liaison and communications link between the Hispanic/Latino community and Coconino County.
Celebraciones de la Gente concluded on Sunday, Oct. 30 with the blessing of the altars, complete with music by Mariachi Sol Azteca from Tuscon. Participants, artists, performers and members of the community then gathered in front of the Día de los Muertos mural for a group photo.
Presented by Museum of Northern Arizona and Flagstaff Nuestras Raíces, the event featured music, dance performances, discussions on Hispanic history in Northern Arizona and information on the history of the altars presented in the courtyard.
