A Day of the Dead celebration Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Davis Cemetery will remember all ancestors and the legacy of scholar Jack Forbes.

The free event, which will run from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., is presented by the Davis Cemetery District in collaboration with Woodland Community College ethnic studies professor Melissa Moreno and the Forbes family. The cemetery is at 820 Pole Line Road.

The event will celebrate the Day of the Dead, one of the few Meso-American indigenous-influenced rituals, honoring the circle of life on Earth. It will include indigenous dancers Kalpulli Tlayolotl, drummers, speakers, poets and music honoring all ancestors, including Forbes, who founded D-Q University and was a professor of native American studies at UC Davis.

Forbes’ last doctoral student, Jennie Luna, will open this special celebration with a multilingual blessing given in Nahuatl, Spanish and English.

A welcome by Joseph Finkleman, community outreach director of the Davis Cemetery District, will be followed by a remembrance of Forbes by Melissa Johnson and Moreno, a sharing of Forbes’ poetry by Carolyn Forbes, native flute music by Rose Borunda and traditional Mexican music by Mariachi Tonantzin.

The event will conclude with a special blessing and viewing of Forbes’ grave site.

For more information, contact Finkleman at [email protected].
