Welcome to Peyote People. We are based in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where we have run a Native Folk Art Gallery since 1997 that works directly with the Huichol artists and their families.

Justo learned his trade from his father Jose Benitez Sanchez; the foremost master of the yarn painting and has a style that reflects her teachers classic style although he has his own distinct color combinations and super crisp definition. This piece reminds us of the old days when the yarn paintings were not as stylized and were more about the vision rather than the symbols.
Please feel free to write us if you have any questions regarding anything in our collection, or the Huichol 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, because unlike the urban Huichol that live in the city, the Sierra Huichol are actively involved in the preservation of their cultures traditions.
