November SIRS Spotlights

Para el mes de Noviembre, te recomendamos utilizar SIRS para aprender más sobre los orígenes del Día de Gracias que sin falta se celebra en la cultura estadounidense.


SIRS RESEARCHER

Este mes se celebra la Herencia IndoAmericana que busca resaltar las dificultades, los prejuicios y la discrminación que los nativoamericanos han sufrido durante la historia. También es una forma de transmitir a nuestros educandos sobre la cultura y la herencia que los Indios han legado a este país.
Mientras que se expandió el dominio inglés hacia el oeste, se fueron rompiendo los tratados entre los invadores y las tribus, de manera que estos últimos fueron removidos de sus hogares y fueron forzados a vivir en reservaciones donde se extendieron los problemas de salud, la pobreza y el alcoholismo entre sus comunidades. Además de las enfermades del "hombre blanco" (como la viruela) que mataron a millones.

Te invitamos a utilizar esta base de datos para conocer más.

November Holidays in Mexico


Day of the Death (November 2)
"Death takes a holiday here [ Mexico ] each year when the living honor their ancestors during Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead. The national celebration is a blend of customs rooted in a culture originating before the arrival of conquistadors and Catholicism, and evolving thereafter as two races united to form modern Mexico . The rituals of welcoming the dead take place at home and at graveside to honor life and death not as a beginning and an end, but as a continuum. The celebration is a reminder that the dead are with us constantly, never further away than a memory. And instead of focusing on the sadness of loss, Dia de los Muertos is a time of great joy and happiness." Source: Copley News Service

Mexican Revolution Day (November 20)
" In the political arena, the Porfiriato was marked by the systematic violation of the principles of the constitution of 1857. Díaz courted foreign interests, allowed the clergy again to become openly influential in temporal matters, and gave the army a free hand to violate guaranteed civil liberties . In October 1910, Madero drafted the Plan of San Luis Potosí . By January 1911, however, a large-scale insurrection had broken out in the northern state of Chihuahua , led by Pascual Orozco, a local merchant, and Francisco "Pancho" Villa. Madero, who had declared himself provisional president in the Plan of San Luis Potosí, returned to Mexico to lead the nascent revolution " Source: Library of Congress.
