Welcome to Peyote People, my name is Kevin and together with my wife Beatriz we run a small gallery in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico that works directly with the Huichol Indians that live in San Andres Cohamiata, Jalisco. Over the last 10years 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. That Jaguar Head measures 12" from the back of the head to the tip of his nose and is 10" from ear to ear. Please feel free to write us if you have any questions regarding any of the pieces in our collection or the Huichol that we work with. Peyote People has been recognized by the Huichol Traditional Government of San Andres Cohamiata for its work in the community and started a Fair Trade co-operative that promotes cultural authenticity by working with Huichol that actually live in the Sierra and are actively involved in the presvation of their cultures traditions.
