There have been countless fires since the last ice age. What can the charcoal of the past tell us about the future of our world?

Mitchell Power is curator of the Garrett Herbarium at the Utah Museum of Natural History.
“salt 8″ featured artist Shigeyuki Kihara will perform her iconic solo dance, which draws on the classical Samoan taualuga to retell the cultural legacy of colonialism in Samoa from an indigenous perspective. Kihara is a prominent artist born in Samoa and based in New Zealand; her work investigates the complexities of cultural identity, colonialism, representation, gender roles, and spirituality through performance, photography, and video. Kihara’s work is featured in the salt gallery, as well as inserted into the UMFA’s Pacific Island galleries in the Dolores Doré Eccles and Frank Sanguinetti Exhibition Wing—a photographic intervention meant to stimulate dialogue among the objects.
Day of the Dead Celebration
November 2, 2013
6 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Day of the Dead Altar Display
October 28 – November 7, 2013
Mon – Thurs, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. and by arrangement
On November 2, the community altar will be on display at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center, along with many activities and events, including traditional Mexican food, music, dance ceremonies, games and paper flower making/sugar skull decorating for kids. Bring the whole family to experience this one-of-a-kind celebration of Mexican heritage and culture here in Utah.
The Day of the Dead is actually a two-day Mexican holiday celebrated November 1-2. For two days and nights families and friends gather together with other community members to pay respects to and remember the dead. Altars are constructed at gravesites or in homes with food, beverages and other items once owned or appreciated by the deceased. It is believed that for these two nights – one for children; the other for adults – the spirits of the dead return to be with family and friends. The more elaborate the altar, the more likely the dead will return to be with loved ones once again. Objects representing the person in real life are used to entice the spirit to travel great lengths to return to earth, if only for one night. Day of the Dead bread, flowers, water, mirrors, sugar skulls, candles, skeletons and Catholic iconography are traditional items used as part of Day of the Dead altars. The rituals and altar construction date back to the ancient Aztecs, ancestors to Mexicans.
Both events are free and open to the public
