"Wixaritari"

“The Healing People.” as they call themselves

For centuries, hidden away from the modern world and protected by the natural barrier

The mountains afforded, the Wixaritari have performed ceremonial rituals they believe heal the Earth and keep nature balanced.

They are one of the last pre-Hispanic alive cultures in Latin America, despite the Spanish colonization and the advance of the Mexican society, they have kept their culture, rituals and their ancient way of living.

Huicholes teach us that man must be a guardian of the Earth, he must feel in his heart the pain of the wounded animal, the crushed blade of grass. For all souls are linked.

The universal life force kupuri, flows through all nature's creations. And when man destroys nature, he destroys the finest part of his own being.
