Huichol Art

Leave a comment

Students in Sexto are exploring the cultural origins of Huichol art.  The Huichol are an indigenous group from central Mexico known for their intricate beadwork and embroidery.  Above is the Vochol bug, a work created by indigenous Huichol artists in Nayarit and Jalisco, Mexico.  Students learned Spanish vocabulary related to important recurring symbols in Huichol beadwork and created their own symbols using Perler beads.
