The Huichol is an indigenous tribe in central-west Mexico. The Huichol tribe resides in Jalisco, Zacactecas, Nayarit and Durango. The climate is harsh, with deep ravines, sparse mountain trees and subtropic vegetation. Huichol grows corn in their divided, self-governed “comunidades,” with land communally owned and passed down through families. The extended family is the core of society, so farmsteads and ranchos sit grouped close together. Huichol traditions center around their religious beliefs and daily life.
