Huichol Art
The Huichol Indians
Mexico's Huichol people refer to themselves as "Wixarica", are members of an autonomous
and resilient culture that dates back to pre-Columbian times.  Approximately 15,000 Huichol
inhabit the remote mountains of Mexico, keeping alive many cultural, spiritual and artistic traditions that are now long extinct in most parts of the Americas.  The Huichol Uto-Aztecan language, symbolism, plant knowledge, myths, music and shamanic wisdom are pipelines into a reservoir of native traditions that hold invaluable lessons for all of humanity.  Within the shaman's dreams, visions and chants is a history that, like an old growth forest of the mind has roots in humanity's past and much needed wisdom for our future.

Yarn Painting
Considered a sacred art, before a yarn painting is undertaken the artist is inspired by a sacred story or mystical event.  The solar deity "Tayaupa" (our father) plays a special role in yarn painting, because sunshine is required to soften the beeswax to the proper consistency.  The delicate touch of the artist is essential in making a successful painting.
