Welcome to Peyote People

Over the last 10 years we have developed very close relationships with a number of Huichol families. Unlike most who buy their art in the city, we like to actually fly up into the Sierra to observe their ceremonies and rituals and take them supplies like the carvings that they use and new glass beads with irridescent colors that we import for our artists to work with. We believe that the artist is just as valuble as the art; every piece that we sell is marked with the artist name and has a stamp that states their tribal affiliation which adheres to the 1991 Indian Arts and Crafts Act. Huichol art abounds today in places like ebay, as well as tourist towns like Puerto Vallarta. A simple google search will bring up more web sites than there are Huichol!! The true art however is very difficult to find. It does not come from Huichol that live in the city, but rather those who actually live in the sierra, those who are involved in doing the ceremonies and rituals that make up what it means to be Huichol. Florencio Lopez the son of Don Jacinto Lopez Ramirez, one of the founding fathers of the bead art. Florencio's family, as one of the pioneering families of the art, has been doing the bead art for over 30 years now.
