The Huichol are a Native American people of western Mexico who have retained their unique culture and prehispanic religious beliefs.Their remote location in the rugged Sierra Madre Occidental mountains, primarily in the state of Jalisco and Nayarit, has allowed them greater resistance to the forces of Christianization and acculturation. Each year they journey to the State of Nuevo Leon, to the canyons of Santa Catarina, where they believe the earth was born. This book features the Robert M. Zingg Collection of the Museum of Indian Arts and Cukture/Laboratory of Anthopology. Size 9 x 11. Illustrated.
