Each year the Spiral Dance features beautiful and elaborate altars. Altars provide a way of showing honor and respect for the Elements , spirits and deities, and for our Beloved Dead. There are also altars that bring into focus political, social justice and environmental challenges our community is working on. In years past these altars have commemorated the loss of endangered species, remembered victims of police violence, highlighted injustices visited upon peoples of color and the LGBTQ+ community. There have been stunning altars celebrating elders and artists and spaces created to honor activists and world changers.
This year our community will erect altars for:
The Beloved Dead
*Additional altars will be announced as they are confirmed
