The Mast'aku are altars set up in public buildings and family homes through Bolivia for the Todos Santos festival in Bolivia. In this cultural conversation, you will learn about building a mast'aku and the traditions surrounding this ritual during the Feast of All Souls. Will you build your own mast'aku on the Day of the Dead to honor the faithful departed?
