Huichol Indian Culture and History

As a complement to our Huichol language information, here is our collection of indexed links about the Huichol tribe and their society. Please note that Huichols and other American Indians are living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Huichol history is interesting and important, but the Huichol Indians are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the life and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Please contact us if you have a Huichol link to add.
