Latin Pulse goes online this week on Halloween, which provides a backdrop for the exploration of the culture of death in Mexico and elsewhere in Latin America. The program discusses in-depth the Day of the Dead traditions in Mexico, Guatemala and the United States. The program also discusses the folk saint Santa Muerte in Mexico and how that icon has become popular among drug cartels. The program also connects the Day of the Dead celebrations and Santa Muerte to indigenous religions. The news segment of the program covers a conference for indigenous women in Peru.
