Luis is from Las Guyabas a ceremonial center located deep in the canyon below San Andres Cohamiata the principal ceremonial Center on the Western side of the Chapalagana river. The Huichol from Las Guyabas are extraordinarily traditional and prefer to follow their ancient customs unlike others who have adopted more modern ways on the plateau in San Andres.

In 1890 the American Museum of Natural History in New York sent Carl Lumholtz a Norweigen explorer into Mexico to explor the Sierra Madre Mountains and look for the Anazazi. Lumholtz spent 8 years in two excursions traveling from Bizbee, Arizona to Morelia, Michoacan. In 1898 Lumholtz was the first to document the Huichol and in 1900 published a book on Huichol Symbolim that described the jicaras to be an essential part of the Huichol ceremony and ritual. It is a feminin object, women are responsible for creating and carrying them to sarced sancturaries.
