Event Name:Huichol Art Shopping Days
Event Type(s):Margaretville
Description:Holiday Shopping Days !

In the rugged Sierra Madre of Mexico, the Huichol people are living as they have for thousands of generations, in communion with nature and each other. Never conquered by outsiders, their sacred traditions and connection to the Gods have remained intact. They are one of only a handful of existing indigenous cultures with such a continuous heritage. Their lives center around sacred rituals and tradition, everything from planting corn to embroidering clothes done in a sacred way, their artwork alive with their experience of the Divine.

Blue Deer Center founded the Huichol Art Project to support the Huichols by creating markets in this country for their sacred artwork. This non-profit enterprise enables many Huichol families to remain in their homeland maintaining their lifeways, rather than migrating to the lowlands to be exploited in factories and tobacco plantations.
