Descendents of the Aztecs, The Huichol people are a tribe from the remote villages of Jalisco and Nayarit regions of Mexico. They’re the only indigenous speakers of Wixárika.
Made to communicate with ancestors, the techniques for creating Huichol beaded art originally started with materials made from bone, clay, stone, coral, seeds, turquoise, and jade. Although new materials are used today, traditional symbols and designs typically seen in Huichol art continue.
