HUICHOL Fun Facts
KUELKER MISSIONS
Interesting facts

  •        The Huichols never have trained for war or have fought other
    tribes.. Not even the Spanish during the “invasion” of Mexico.

  •        Deer, Corn and Peyote are the key spiritual symbols in the
    Huichol Culture

  •        In Huichol Mythology they evolved from wolves.  By learning the
    ways of the gods, hunting the deer and offering the blood of the deer
    to the gods they were finally able to remain in human form.  Shamans
    proclaim the ability to metamorphose into wolves.

  •        They remain one of the last tribes of people in North America
    who still live much as they did in Per-colombian times, maintaining
    the same ageless rituals and beliefs.  They are considered by many
    anthropologists to be an invaluable window to the past.
