Gina Pérez is a cultural anthropologist at Oberlin College and the author of two award-winning books—The Near Northwest Side Story: Gender, Migration and Puerto Rican Families and Citizen, Student, Soldier: Latina/o Youth, JROTC and the American Dream. She and Arrow’s Carol Parker discuss Día de Los Muertos, from its roots in ancient Mesoamerica to a gradual blending of cultural practices, leading to present-day meaning as a celebration of life.
