  1. Huichol Indians of Mexico • The Huichol or Wixáritari (Huichol pronunciation: /wiˈraɾitaɾi/) are an indigenous ethnic group of western central Mexico, living in the Sierra Madres, the Occidental range in the Mexican states of Nayarit, Jalisco, Zacatecas, and Durango. They are best known as theHuichol, however, they refer to themselves as Wixáritari ("the people") in their native Huichol language. • Population: about 26,000 • In traditional Huichol communities, an important ritual artifact is the nieli'ka: a small square or round tablet with a hole in the center covered on one or both sides with a mixture of beeswax and pine resin into which threads of yarn are pressed. Yarn paintings are created.
