The Huichol people are native Mexicans who live primarily in the Sierra Madre Occidental range in the Mexican states of Nayarit, Jalisco, Zacatecas and Durango. Their art is very detailed and time consuming since the bead art also known as "chaquira" involves placing each bead individually. Some pieces have tens of thousands of beads. Huichol people also create pieces of art with the use of colored yarns. The Huichol indigenous communities are accomplished artists in their creations expressing their collective worldview; Huichol crafts are renowned for their beauty and the complexity of their manufacture. Those familiar with the workmanship of their handmade creations, understand that theirs is an ancient art. For all images, all designs, they have one virtue: storytelling.
