i love the huicholes.
i first encountered huichol culture 12 years ago in real de catorce - another of my favorite mexican towns. it was there that i learned that the huicholes existed, heard their story, dropped my jaw at their beauty. my huichol love has grown steadily since that trip.
the huichol presence in sayulita is one of the things i love about this town. i get to see the artisans daily. i get to introduce my children to their beautiful work. and this week i get to start working with the huichol center for cultural survival.
their sacred lands are threatened. the huichol culture is endangered.
and my huichol love grows.
