The religion of the Huichols is centered upon three major symbols: deer, maize, and peyote Kathleen Berrin.

The religion of the Huichols is centered upon three major symbols: deer, maize, and peyote. Somehow, in the Huichol mind these three symbols are all the same. Ms. Myerhoff sets out to solve this riddle and in the process goes on a peyote hunt with a middle-aged part-time shaman, Ramon, whom Myerhoff depicts in respectful, even adoring, prose. Her interpretation of events leads her to conclude that the Huichols once lived in a hunting culture, but were at some point long ago forced to adapt to an agricultural culture, and this change is documented in the peyote hunt.

Huichol art broadly groups the most traditional and most recent innovations in the folk art and handcrafts produced by the Huichol people, who live in the states of Jalisco, Durango, Zacatecas and Nayarit in Mexico. The unifying factor of the work is the colorful decoration using symbols and designs which date back centuries. The most common and commercially successful products are "yarn paintings" and objects decorated with small commercially produced beads.

Beautiful plates. Many plates are black and white but quite a few are vivid color and show the beautifully colored yarn paintings, bead work, and carvings of the Huichol Indians.
If you are interested in the Arts of the Huichols and their sacred rituals than find this book. I've looked over several books offered in Mexico and the United States on the Huichol and have found that this book is still king. I visited their cultural center in Nayarit this past summer and what is offered now pales by comparison. This book is written in a style that is like a sociological study at times but the case studies are fascinating and worth reading. The author covers the religious use of peyote and the often drug induced weavings that result from their visions. Although the ritualistic use of peyote and their yarn paintings are some of the things the Huichol are known for, the book is much more complex and delves into the social structure of the group as well. There are many color plates and black and white photographs that lend a realism to the book . The various contributing authors take the reader on a journey with them into the world of the shaman, including his initiation and rituals. There is a very intersting chapter that deals with acculturation and economics. This is an extremely beautiful book that will please the senses for years. Recommended for those interested in one of Mexico's indigenous groups that has resisted the onslought of European culture for centuries. Buyer beware, if you find this book you may get spoiled with the other offerings out there on the Huichols of Mexico. Recommended for seekers of knowledge of a seperate reality and the magnificent Art of the Huichol Indians.
Awfully Awesome! Quite an eyewitness yarn from nine contributors who have been there,
loaded with black and photo and color photos. Yarn paintings, beads, baskets, cloths, belts,
and buttons, oh, the buttons!
This book gives great insight into the mysterious Huichol Indians of Mexico and their rituals. Although an art book, there are many color photographs, as well as black and white photos of the Huichol in their day to day lives. Truly a fascinating study of a group of people living as they have for hundreds of years. A cultural anthropology art book would be a better descriction. One learns about the old tradions that still exist to this day and the wonderful often peyote induced art that results. Pleasing for the eyes as well as the mind, reads like a college text but still the pictures and insights make it worthwhile.
