About

 We, the Huicholes, are an ethnic group with 500 years of history. We live in Mexico, mainly in the regions of Nayarit, Jalisco, Durango, and Zacatecas. We are known around the world as an ethnic group with very differentcharacteristics from the rest of Mexico’s groups; especially in our religious and cultural expressions. We have a very unique dress style and colorful art – called “Arte Huichol”. This kind of art involves decorating objects with small colorful beads that represent distinctive traits of our spirituality.

 We are a group of 120 Huichol artists that we have agreed to decorate guitars and sneakers for men and women. We want to show the world who we really are. Misinformation about our culture has damaged our people. We believe that the more the world knows about us, the more we will be protected from harm. We also believe that this will help protect our mother earth, our father the sun, and our common crib, the ocean. We don’t want to be wiped out by invading cultures that don’t understand our culture, like it happened with many tribes in North America.

 We ask you to help us by pledging to this campaign, either buying the guitar or sneakers decorated with arte Huichol. Every piece will be unique in its design and elaborated by one of the 120 artists we are part of this project.

 

 Thank you for helping and share the love the universe has for the whole of humanity.
