Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This document primarily draws on information the author
gathered in the field in 1934, with additional data from Carl Lumholtz, who conducted
fieldwork among the Huichol from 1894 to 1897. Much of the book is devoted to discussing
change and continuity in the social and religious life of the Huichol in the face of
increasing contact with Spanish missionaries and the Mexican state. Specific themes
include: the place of religion in household relations and community life, mythology and
organized ceremonials, sacred arts and symbolic representation, spirituality and
acculturation, and technology and economic life.
