Mexico: Dia de los Muertos Paper Crafts

Authors:

Day of the Dead (or Dia de los Muertos) is an important part of Mexican culture. A two-day celebration of life and death, Day of the Dead is not a version of how we typically think of Halloween--it is a cultural tradition to honor lost family members. Death is perceived as a natural phase of life in Mexico, and those who have passed on are remembered in spirit and memory. It is believed that during Dia de los Muertos, the spirits of the dead return to earth temporarily.

Japanese Culture: One Thousand Paper Cranes

8/29/2021 (new)
Authors:

Origami has a rich and complex history that spans culture, class and geography, composed of the Japanese words oru (to fold) and kami (paper) (PBS, 2017). Paper was first invented in China around 105 AD and was brought to Japan by monks in the sixth century. Handmade paper was a luxury item only available to a few, and paper folding in ancient Japan was strictly for ceremonial purposes, often religious in nature (PBS, 2017). Traditional origami is characterized by open-access folding patterns and sequences passed down orally or anonymously from generation to generation. Modern origami often features models created by designers (PBS, 2017).

Folklore is sometimes referred to as folk culture and can be defined as the study of customs, traditions, and folk tales of a group of people. Swedish scholars have defined folklore in two ways: 1) folklivsforskning or the "study of folk life," including traditional materials and practices, and 2) folkminnesforsknin, referring to folk knowledge passed down from generation to generation, through stories, songs, and plays, to teach traditions, beliefs, and customs (Kongas, 1963).
