The Huichol Indians of the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico are a very traditional tribe. They still speak their native language and adhere to native customs and beliefs. They are known for their beautiful yarn paintings and bead work. They cover a surface with bees wax and press tiny colorful beads into the wax to make beautifully detailed designs. They typically take peyote before they do their art work. The peyote sends them on travels where they see things that they then incorporate into their work. They also create intricate beaded jewelry.
