“The cult of life, if it is truly profound and total, is also the cult of death. Both are inseparable. A civilization that denies death ends up denying life” - Octavio Paz.
Mexicas, Mayans, Purépechas, Totonacs, Zapotecs, it is known that, before the conquest, all these groups made offerings to their dead so that they could reach their destinations, after death, in peace. That's where the origin of the Day of the Dead comes from.
In the case of the Mexica, in their calendar called tonalpohualli, they had up to 6 celebrations a year for the dead. For this reason, it took a long time for All Saints' Day, which today coincides with the Day of the Dead, to be adapted to a single day and in fact in many parts of Mexico the celebrations of the dead continue to expand for several days, as in the case of the Zapotecs in the Sierra de Oaxaca.
