The Huichol or Wixáritari are Native Mexicans. They are best known to the larger world as the Huichol, however, they refer to themselves as Wixáritari ("the people") in their native Huichol language. In the past thirty years, about four thousand Huichols have migrated to cities. It is these urbanized Huichols who have drawn attention to their rich culture through their art. To preserve their ancient beliefs they began making detailed and elaborate yarn paintings. The symbols in these paintings are sprung out of Huichol culture and its shamanistic traditions. From the small beaded eggs and jaguar heads to the modern detailed yarn paintings in psychedelic colors, each is related to a part of Huichol tradition and belief. The modern yarn that Huichols use is woven much tighter and is thinner allowing for great detail and the colors are commercial allowing for much more variety. Before access to these materials in cities, Huichols used vegetable dyes. The first large yarn paintings were exhibited in Guadalajara in 1962 which were simple and traditional. At present with the availability of a larger spectrum of commercial dyed and synthetic yarn, more finely spun yarn paintings have evolved into high quality works of art. This publication and the exhibition that accompanied it borrowed from old and documented collections around the country to provide a comprehensive view of Huichol art from the late 19th century to the time of its exhibit in 1978-79. It was exhibited in San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. There are sections on Huichol sacred art, peyote and the mystic vision, the neurochemistry of religious insight and ecstasy, acculturation and economics, and shamanism.
  • awful

  • 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.
